Why is it so hard to find a book to listen to, that I like? Often I get bored, if not at once, then after a while. Maybe after 20 pages or an hour, maybe even later, halfway through! Often I don't begin to listen at all since I think the voice of the reader … Continue reading Searching – failing
A handful of the books on my virtual bookshelf... quite multifaceted... It's really awesome to be able to choose whether to listen to a book or read it. For the time being, I prefer to listen - you can be almost anywhere or do almost anything while listening - but you can't get them all … Continue reading A handful of books…
I confess! Haven't been reading much lately. Finished "Educated" by Tara Westower. Super-good! Finished "The Timetravelers Wife" by Audrey Nieffenegger. One of my favorites!

"Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine" by Gail Honeyman I haven't been listening to a book for some time now, men since I've seen this one "everywhere", I looked for it at "Storytel". It was available there, and I choose to listen to it in its original fashion. In English - with Scottish and all. And … Continue reading Time to read – or rather – time to listen.
The main character in the novel "A Confederacy of Dunces" is a horrible person! Ignatius Reilly is mean, egoistic, egocentric, lazy, bullying, scornful, harasser, overeating, fat - which per se isn't a crime, but in this case, well contributes to the general picture of this... person.
