Great idea ..

I have piles of books all around the house but also a number of devices
with internet access ... in some of these piles

Naomi Klein This Changes Everything
Ken Wark Molecular Red
Paul Edwards A Vast Machine
Alfred Whitehead The Aims of Education
Nietzsche Writings from the Late Notebooks
Judy Atkinson Trauma Trails
Roland Faber The Divine Manifold
Pat Barker Toby's Room
Whitehead Process and Reality
Sherburne the key to the above
Erin Manning Relationscapes
Erin Manning A Minor Gesture
Steven Shaviro Discognition
Subhankar Banerjee Arctic Voices
Walt Whitman On the beach at night alone
Zen Poems
Jane Rawson and James Whitmore The Handbook for Surviving and Living with
Climate Change
Matsuo Basho Lips Too Chilled
Yuk Hui On the Existence of Digital Objects
Brian Massumi Ontopower
Jason Moore Anthropocene or Capitalocene
Francois Bonnet The Order of Sounds
Isabelle Stengers Thinking with Whitehead
Stamatia Portanova Moving without a Body
Benjamin Bratton The Stack
Peter Fleming Resisting Work

That should do it .. of course, I'll never read all of this over summer and
probably not over the rest of the year but I can give it a good go.
