Todays work

My class is working on a book project. We are going to write a book together, and today we were supposed to start working on it. We got a couple of questions, an we had to choose one of them to answer. I decided on working together with my friend, Hanne (

We have written a text about collaborating and getting in touch with people from all over the world via twitter and Skype. Both Skype and Twitter are both social medias that are great to get in contact with other people, and it is perfect if need information, but can't find it. Even if you feel like you have read through almost all homepages, and all books on a subject, there will always be someone who know more. You just need to get in touch with them.

Reading books

I am going to read an English book, and I have chosen to read "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children". I read about it here: http://www.amazon.com/Miss-Peregrines-Home-Peculiar-Children/dp/1594744769

It has got very good reviews, and many people have rated it with 5 stars. The title really attracted me, it is weird, funny, and seems at bit scary. I think that books with good titles usually are good books. I also like that the author has mixed in photographs in the book, this is different, and something I have never seen before. It is very unusual and creative, and I think that may add something great to the book. Almost all of the reviews I have read says that it is a very good story, and that the author has written it very well. There are also some people that were disappointed with the ending. I really hope that the ending isn't that bad, because I hate a bad ending of a good book. One review said: "I just had to read it to the end!" I take that as a good sign, and I hope that it is as good as it seems.

I am looking forward to read this book
