Weekly Journal July 4-10 2011

This week I have chilled and enjoyed my vacation. Summer here in the far north is short but sweet so you have to make the best of it.

A Beautiful Friendship by David Weber was my best read of the week. I have also started to re read the Dominic Flandry novels or my youth. Surprisingly good and not too dated. Flandry is philandering the females of the galaxy while doing a convincing future James Bond.

I have also been catching up on my pile of television.  Primeval series 6  was one step up, pity UK have to wait until next year to see it. If it gets renewed series six won’t happen until 2013 which is far too long. I am watching the Listener at the moment.

Next week will be lazy too. I will publish a report of the year so far and the books to expect in August.
