All about books

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.

Prince of Persia

Prince Of Persia Sands Of TimeI’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.
