    5 different books on love

    5 different books on love Here are 5 different books on love just in time for Valentines Day! Whether you like the day or not, I find that books are always a good idea. I’ve collected some of my earlier book reviews for this list, to represent different views on love. (One of them is in Danish). They are different genres and the themes and writing styles are also quite different, so hopefully you’ll find at least one of them interesting. You can read the full reviews by following the links in the book titles. I’ve tried to relate each of them to something with a similar theme or feel,…

    Book review: Do androids dream of electric sheep?

    This is my book review of Do Androids Dream of Electrical Sheep by Philip K. Dick. Book review of Do Androids Dream of Electrical Sheep I borrowed the book from a co-worker, who also reviews books (in Danish) in this laidback podcast LæsDen.dk – check them out if you speak Danish!

Summary of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep This summary is taken from the blurp on the back of the book.…

    Ditch the formalities and write!

    Are you a writer or an aspiring author? Do you find it difficult to get started on your story? Maybe you want to make sure that everything looks right from the beginning? Ditch the formalities – and write! I’ve often encountered writers (mostly the unpublished ones), who care an awful lot about ‘doing it properly’. They are asking questions about writing software, formatting their text and other technicalities. Before they have even thought about a plot or a character. Before there is a story to write. Does that sound like you? Maybe this post can help you to just get started on the actual writing. Being correct or making excuses?…
