My detox from blogging and being a stat whore is over for this time; it has been a well-needed rest, and I feel eager to get going again. The first two weeks, the weather in Sweden were suckier than ever, but the last week was spent on one of Sweden’s “large” islands, Öland, and the weather was perfect.
The initial bad weather, however, didn’t disturb me at all. I had two goals with my vacation; spend time with my daughter and girlfriend, and read books. And these were basically the only two things I did the first two weeks. I haven’t used a computer at all for three weeks and hardly no TV watching either. And it felt great! To me, life without computers feels like time better spent, more quality to it. At least if you use the time playing with the cutest kid ever, and drifting away in imaginary worlds in books! 🙂
The books I read was:
- Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King
- This is the fifth book of seven in Stephen King’s magnificent Dark Tower opus. Only two books left now, and I just ordered the sixth one before I wrote this post (and waiting for the seventh one to be released as paperback, I really prefer that format). Incidentally, two persons who I really respect seem to be hooked on the series too, although they seem to have completed all seven books (Roger about books , Tommy’s summer summary)
- Digital Fortress by Dan Brown
- Now I’ve read all four of Dan Brown’s novels, and I started reading him just before the The Da Vinci Code-hype (although that book being the first I read from him). Of course his stories might stretch the truth sometimes, and it can get a bit annoying when his characters are extremely handsome and supersmart and brave like no one else alive etc. But if one looks past that, the books are also exciting and grip your attention. Personally, I like Angels & Demons the most of his books.
Anyway, now I’m back and boy, do I have a lot of things to write about! Tomorrow, I start working again and I have to get back in the loop with things, so expect my next post on Tuesday 23rd. And oh, it’s about Microsoft, so don’t miss it… 🙂
