I do miss you all!

Hello…

I really do miss this blog.  I still haven’t got much time to write extensive posts, but I think I will try something a little different.

As you perhaps noticed, I changed the name of my blog into Words & Images… because I do not want to talk only about books I have read or want to read, but also about films I saw, series I follow and TV-programs I like.   The posts won’t be long, and they will contain information I gather elsewhere together with thoughts of my own.

I will start posting later this month, or perhaps only in the first week of September, because I want to work out a schedule that is do-able for me and at the same time interesting to readers and followers of the blog.

So… SEE YOU LATER

Discover a Book! May

Some time ago I read a great post on BookRiot about the Best Use of QR codes EVER‘ and I knew I wanted to do something with it.  So here is my idea… On the 15th of each month you can discover an e-book behind one of these codes that I will post on my blog.  I’ll give you a couple of hints too.  Most of the time it will be a classic, but perhaps now and then there will be a newer book to read.

I hope you all enjoy this random tour of books and  would like to thank BookRiot for this idea.

Here is the “Book of the Month”.  Can you guess which author wrote this book?

Tips:

  • This English author wrote 30 novels, more than 60 short stories, 14 plays, and over 100 non-fiction pieces.
  • Another one of his works (The Moonstone) is considered by many to be one of the first detective novels ever.
