Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

I just finished Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert and I love it. The book is about creative living, regardless of what you're creating. Whether you're a writer, painter, photographer, do pottery or anything else this book is inspiring. The book description at The Book Depository says: Readers of all ages and... Continue Reading →

Books and reading

I love books, browsing book stores in real life is a pleasure. Despite that I'm not an avid collector with lots of book on shelves. I'm picky which books I buy, it has to click in some way. My favourite online book store is The Book Depository. They have free shipping to many countries, including... Continue Reading →

The Little Prince

I just finished "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. It's a lovely fable and a great story. What especially stuck with me is the secret the fox tells him: "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." The prince repeats it later in...

I have considered the book "Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Happier Life" by Arianna Huffington for a while but couldn't make up my mind. Seth Godin posted a short review, "What does success look like now?", over at hugdug. The text below is part of that. Most people use the... Continue Reading →

The Rosie Project

While waiting at the station in Malmö I browsed the PocketShop store. I often do that, browse a book store without intent to buy anything. Books matter to me and give me a lot. I noticed "The Rosie Project" book and picked it up. It's marketed as fun and entertaining. A quick look inside supported... Continue Reading →
