    Bog anmeldelse: Kvinde kend dit netværk

    Bog anmeldelse af Kvinde kend dit netværk Det er faktisk allerede længe siden jeg læste Kvinde kend dit netværk af Katja Iversen. Men jeg har allerede anbefalet den til en del (ikke kun kvinder) i min faglige omgangskreds. Nu skal du høre hvorfor. Kvinde kend dit netværk af Katja Iversen “Netværk er et håndværk. Det kræver en del øvelse tilsat lidt nysgerrighed og et drys mod til at overskride egne grænser. Bliver du nervøs undervejs? Sikkert. Er det stadig indsatsen værd? Ja!

    Book review: To be taught if fortunate

    Book review of To be taught if fortunate To be taught if fortunate is a short sci-fi novel by Becky Chambers. I found it via looking through my friends reads on Goodreads, and it looked enticing.

At the turn of the twenty-second century, scientists make…

Grå magi – Pigen fra Månehøjen 1 “Et svagt minde fortalte Aia, at det ikke var første gang hun havde oplevet livet svinde. Pludseligt dukkede det op ud af tågen.
