The purpose of this page is mostly personal, but may also act as inspiration for anyone looking for a good (or bad) book to read :)
Roughly every second month, I meet with my friends Morten, Mikkel, Klaus, and Jeff to discuss a book we've read.
And maybe have a beer. We have a reading club called "…men Hans Diller lever".
The name comes from a piece of graffiti at KUA, the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Copenhagen, where all students and teachers have a collective crush on Michel Foucault.
Someone wrote, with huge letters in front of the entrance, "FOUCAULT IS GAY".
Later, "IS" was edited to "WAS" to clarify that he had died, and even later someone added "MEN HANS DILLER LEVER",
which is both a dull joke (meaning "but his willie is alive" in Danish) and a reference to the little-known German classical scholar and historian Hans Diller.
That's meta-humanity-humour for ya.
These are the books we've read.
For sorting reasons, dates are written as yyyy/mm/dd. Country codes follow FIFA's country codes.
We also rated them on a scale from 0 to 5.
The ratings shows the mean and spread (standard deviation, i.e. how much we agreed/disagreed on the rating).
Because I like statistics, below the table you'll find a summary of how our readings are distributed according to various parameters.
