Shopping List

In two days I’ll be flying to New York, to visit friends and family and take part in the Future of Web Design conference. If you’re an English speaker and avid reader living in Germany, one of the first things you think about after booking a flight to America is cheap books. And if you’re a sci-fi and fantasy fan (if you’re not, feel free to change channels now) you get excited about a visit to a huge, well-stocked shop in New York dedicated to your favourite books.

To help alleviate me of my guilt at having anything at all in my wallet, I compiled a list of all the winners of the big sci-fi/fantasy awards in the last 10 years. Could be something that’d be interesting and useful for readers like myself, so here it is. Those books I’ve already consumed are crossed out.
