  • bobiverse

    Just finished listening to the first two books of the bobiverse. Listening to a book is different to reading but the joy of reading or listening is the same. I get my audible books through audible. I was going to cancel my subscription but I want to listen to the third book in the series.So […]

  • Tribe – On Homecoming and Belonging

    Just finished listening to Tribe by Sebastian Junger. I found the authors take on what is missing from modern society compelling. It is a very short book at 196 pages or less than three hours for the audio version. The amazon page for the book sums it up better than I can: … a book […]

  • Talking to Strangers

    A very entertaining book, but I feel it doesn’t really go anywhere other then to say what we already know. – strangers lie, and we are not very good at detecting this.

  • The Hunger Games [book]

    I love audio books. Listened to over nine hours of audio to finnish off “The Hunger Games“. Its a childrens book, but like a lot of so called childrens book it is well worth a read. I am now listening to the second book in the trilogy

  • Revising my HTML and CSS Skills

    Just purchased a number of books for work, on statistics and HTML from Amazon.com. The sad thing is not only did the books get to me quicker then if I had order it through the local book store (about 20 days) but it was over half the price! The HTML / CSS book I am […]

  • Forever War [BOOK]

    One of my favourite books of all time, Joe Haldeman’s “The Forever War“. I first read it 25 years ago When it was first published over 25 years ago, Joe Haldeman’s novel won the Hugo and Nebula awards and was chosen Best Novel in several countries. Today, it is hailed a classic of science fiction […]
