Not exactly a new normblog poll...

Norm says... no, Norm asks:

You are going to some distant and lonely and low-tech place where you will have to spend the rest of your days, and you can:

- (a) either take 100 books you have already read and which you may then re-read without limit, those being the only books you will ever get to see;

- (b) or not take any of the books you have already read, however much you may love some of them, but instead have a free and regular choice from all the books in the world you haven't yet read, to be supplied to you by the Mobile Library for Isolated Readers in Distant Places.

Would you go for (a) or (b)?
Ehehe... tough. Being Jooish, I shall, probably go for (b) and then gradually establish a smuggling network... then a revolution, and who knows, maybe we"ll get access to the Project Gutenberg and some other places I don't even dare mentioning here.

interesting article. I would love to follow you on twitter. By the way, did you learn that some chinese hacker had busted twitter yesterday again.

B, for sure. A would be too long a list, too hard to pack and too heavy (or expensive) to ship.
