Weekly Journal November 15-21

Pink Noise by Leonid Korogodski was my top read this week and you can read the review on Thursday. I made plenty of reviews this week, good to trim down the list a bit. The list of New SFF books in December was published on Monday.

I also finished the big home improvement project here at ‘Casa Jansson’. I believed the contractor when he told me it would take about a week to put the new kitchen in. It took them three weeks and I think I am the only one surprised. All my friends and co workers just patted me on my shoulder and told me so. Quadro, the contractor did a great job, it looks real nice and the new machines are a dream. I am a happy chef now.
