Here are presented some of my favorite books

My main book topics are natural science, popular science, science fiction
and technical books. Unfortunately I do not give myself time to read so much
imaginative literature. Although well familiar with (at least) technical English
I prefer to read books translated to Swedish. There is an enormous selection
of (especially new) books out there, and I have of course only read a few
of them. Actually I spend more time reading and searching information on
Internet than reading books. Regarding technical information and manuals it
is often superior.

My next book to read will be "The Fabric of Cosmos" by Brian Greene 2004,
in the Swedish translation "Det stoff varav kosmos vävdes". I also come
across another book that seems very nice and interesting, namely "Sofie's
World - Novel about the History of Philosophy" by the Norwegian Jostein
Gaarder 1991, in the Swedish translation "Sofies värld - roman om filosofins
historia". This book is translated to many languages. Unfortunately I did
not take the opportunity to study philosophy at school...

New! August 31 2015. I have now started to read the very fascinating book
"Our Mathematical Universe" by the Swedish-American cosmologist and MIT
Professor Max Tegmark 2014. The main idea or thought by the book is that
the Universe and "everything" are different forms of mathematical structures.
I will also soon read the book "The Hunt For Alien Life - A Wider Perspective"
by Peter Linde at Lund Observatory Sweden 2015. He was actually my supervisor
there when I was a graduate student in the mid 90th. You can easily Google on
the authors names to find their nice and interesting home pages. I usually read
the Swedish translations of books of this kind.

The list is not complete yet and in no special order. The Swedish titles are given in brackets.
