    Book review: Little Women

    Book review of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott Here’s my book review of “Little Women”. I read this book as part of the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge and you can follow my progress right here.

Men hvordan finder du ud af,…

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,…
