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
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! Finished the Swedish Murder Mystery by Maria Lang - brilliant, and feels very modern though it was written in 1949. There weren't no computers nor any cell phones back then. That's … Continue reading reading – sometimes – still

Well-written, mindblowing, heartbreaking, mesmerizing, upsetting, interesting, agonizing, wonderful...... I just can't stop listening! During three … Continue reading I can’t stop!
... a fairy tale... is a fairy tale... is a fairy tale... Tuesdays and Thursdays forenoon, I usually spend a couple of hours at something called "Café Welcome". It´s not a cafeteria per se. People can't just drop in, buy themselves a cup of coffee, or a latte or something, sit there for a while … Continue reading Fairy tales with a dilemma
When you have finished listening to a book on Storytel, you see a couple of buttons on the screen. One, for rating the book - the usual option one to five stars. One, for going back to your bookshelf. And one which says: To book suggestions. After listening to Eleanor Oliphant, I chose the suggestion-button. … Continue reading The next book
"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.
