Books, Books, Books

Although being back in the Netherlands means that I have to miss my girlfriend, there is (/was) a good side about coming back: there were quite some books waiting for me. Thanks to those who ordered them for me and to the think tanks.

The list:
School Choice: The Findings by Herbert J. Walberg (American Enterprise Institute)
The Conservative Mind – From Burke to Eliot by Russell Kirk (7th revised edition)
The Associated Press Stylebook – a great companion for every blogger, journalist and student.
The Challenges of China’s Growth by Dwight H. Perkins
– Expected soon: Beyond Preemption: Force and Legitimacy in a Changing World, Ivo Daalder, ed. (Brookings Institute)

I also received a screener of Cities of Light: The Rise and Fall of Islamic Spain.

Furthermore: I bought quite some books myself in Turkey (sometimes one can find great books for little money there). They are:
Istanbul (a guide for tourists)
My Name is Red by Turkey’s greatest author, Orhan Pamuk
The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope
Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift
Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain (in Turkish)
The Quran: Unchallengeable Miracle – The Quran’s Irrefutable Relationship with Modern Science by Caner Taslaman (fascinating book)
The Meaning of THE HOLY QUR’AN: Complete Translation with Selected Notes by ‘Abdullah Yusuf Ali

Not bad for an addict.
