    Book review: The 4 hour work week

    Book review of The 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris The 4 hour work week by Tim Ferris was first published in 2009 and promises an escape from the 9 to 5 day job. In my defense, I picked this book up at the Euro-train station in London, after being delayed for two days. I needed something to read. Summary “Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan–there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, or earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management,…

    Book review: Mørkets Journaler af Erik Trigger

    Boganmeldelse af Mørkets Journaler *This book review will be in Danish since the book is only published in Danish* Mørkets Journaler er en digtsamling af Erik Trigger Olesen, udgivet i 2017 hos forlaget Brøndum. Jeg plejer ikke at læse digte og det er heller ikke noget du vil finde meget af her på bloggen. (Hvem ved, det kan være det ændrer sig?). Men da jeg fik Mørkets Journaler i hånden og havde set en anden, meget positiv, anmeldelse på Facebook, måtte jeg jo hellere se hvad det var for noget. *Disclaimer: Jeg vil lige for en god ordens skyld tilføje at forfatteren og jeg er i familie, men det har…

    Book review: Burlesque or Bust

    Burlesque or Bust by Sapphira I received a review copy of Burlesque or Bust in exchange for an honest review. As I stumbled upon Sapphira’s post in a group about her new book, Burlesque or Bust, about her personal journey with tackling mental health through burlesque, I was immediately intrigued. Having been in the burlesque scene for a couple of years so far, (the first year didn’t really count), I am aware that a lot of artists in the glittery environment, have their struggles. Both physically, financially and mentally. There is no shame in that, as I see it. So I welcomed her book and offered to read and review…

    Book review: Bevægelse af Susse Wold

    Anmeldelse af Bevægelse af Susse Wold This review will be in Danish, since the book is only published in Danish. Dette er min anmeldelse af Susse Wolds seneste bog ’Bevægelse’. Jeg købte bogen i forbindelse med en signering i en boghandel i Aarhus. (Billedet er lånt fra Susse Wolds private Facebook profil). Jeg har for nogle år siden læst hendes første samling af erindringer, ’Fremkaldt’. Min mor havde lånt den på biblioteket til en ferie og jeg var løbet tør for læsestof allerede da vi ramte den første tyske rasteplads. Da jeg opdagede at Susse Wold havde endnu en bog på vej og hun tilmed ville signere den i Aarhus, hvor jeg…
