    Putting mentioned book aside to read Philipp Meyer's 'The Son'.
    You're quite the reader Lollo (if I may?). A very nice list of ingested literature indeed.

    I've grown rather old and lazy when it comes to novels. (That's my excuse anyway!) But I still read poetry and history in small doses.

    Thanks for inspiring me to do better. 🙂

    Thank you too! I like to have a good book available at any time. Sometimes when I start a new book, such as 'The Son', to get the feel of it, I start reading it on the bus home which I did today. I'm entering a new world that way and it's waiting for me when I get the time to continue. I love it.
    And Lollo is fine with me, you're welcome.

    Richard Schwatz: Askir Saga (now in vol. 9)

    A quite ok high Fantasy Saga with very interesting consepts of Society and Magic. One sees that it has been written by an engineer.

    I have just finished Julian Barnes: The sense of en ending

    A very intense read, especially the second part. Barnes writes a very good style and has quite interesting ideas as I have observed with other books I have read.

    This one can only be understood fully at the end... and asks a few questions about our responsabilities as we go through our lives.

    Highly recommeded.

    I'm reading "Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus", a classic type guys ^^
    I have tried many ebook apps and found the Freebooks one on the Apknite site. There are more than 50,000s books in this app. Such a great treat for me. You guys can try it.

    As I haven't read it yet, I wouldn't know but let's hope it's not.

    That was a poor attempt at a joke😉

    Just started a murder mystery, Patterson, Postcard murders and Orson Scott Card, Fathergate, fantasy, got it for 3 dollars at a book bin in Kmart.

    Not bad. 🙂

    It's one of these words that can cause confusion in Swedish/English.
