Book Bytes is a wonderful site designed by a woman who loves books. The site’s design has a non-professional appearance, but it’s easy to navigate, and her writing is clear and concise. Her introduction to the site describes what I wish I pursued, instead of becoming a software developer:
I’m a book person. I’ve spent a lot of my life reading and thinking about books. As a mom, I spent years reading aloud to my kid, teaching him to love words and books. As someone who’s always trying to make sense of the world, I use books to find out stuff and to think about and organize what I know. I became a librarian because I loved to put people together with the perfect books for them. As a librarian, I got to choose books for our collection (what fun to spend someone else’s money on books!), and show people the books that will help them.
Here’s a nice, detailed photo of my first Krispy Kreme donut, which I had a couple of weeks ago in Detroit. Hmmmm Mmmmm!
I’m playing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time for the Playstation 2, and it’s a blast. The game-play is linear; not a lot of friggin’ around with mazes, figuring out what to do next, which I like a lot; and the cinematic, controls, and character actions are really cool – a fun game to play, and not difficult to learn.
It’s based on the Prince of Persia game written for DOS many years ago which my brother and I played a lot. The old version is still available for free.
