David Bowies läslista

Jag hittade David Bowies läslista här och kan inte motstå att kolla vilka jag har läst. Jag tittade även på Carl Sagans, jag tycker mycket om honom, men han var för avancerad (läs vetenskaplig) i sin smak. Bowie var mer för skönlitteratur.

Har jag läst boken fetar jag allt, har jag läst något annat av författaren fetar jag namnet.
