Apart from my IT activities, I read scientific magazines
and science-fiction books ("hard" science-fiction, mind you, not fantasy nor
sword-and-sorcery!). I purchase my books on the Internet. I read them preferably
in English for two reasons: for one thing, translations are generally unsatisfactory
because they are hastily thrown together (I know, I used to do some when I was a
student!). Also, it keeps me in shape language-wise. I also spend as much time as
I can surfing on the Internet, because I feel (probably rightly) that it keeps me
in touch with the whole world. I also read comic books from time to time.
