Hello, I’m back!

Tweet And so I’m back. After a lovely weekend with friends, out by the sea in the Stockholm archipelago.  Our friends have a summer place there. And what a place it is! It’s in a very luxurious area, since it’s by the sea and yet so close to the city. And there are a number of famous people who live out there.

I had heard of Jane Austen before, but I never really concidered reading her books (indeed, I didn’t even know what books she had written!) until November 2004.
