It is really interesting to read about how they‘ve made it possible to introduce a 4 day work week. And not just working the same hours during 4 days, but actually reducing the weekly work hours to 30 hrs. Doing this by increasing efficiency - that is inspiring. #efficiency

Hmmm, I really struggled with this book. On the one hand it was really well-written,on the other hand I just felt like I wasn‘t the target audience for this book. I am however glad that I finished the book, because the last two pages of the book turned out to be the best pages. 😀#1001books #reading1001

Halfway through this one. It‘s definitely well written but it doesn‘t really appeal to me that much.

I have a soft spot for Agatha Christie-novels. My father‘s cousin left me her collection of all of Ms Christie‘s novels. They are old and not political correct at all, but they are the epitome of holiday reading to me 😀☀️😎📚#agathachristie #missmarple #holidayreading #summer

Henrik_Madsen I read this one on holiday last year so definitely a #vacationbook for me! 5mo

I‘m listening to this as an audio book whilst in the car with my daughter. I‘ve read it when I was a kid, but either I forgot how funny and warm it is or perhaps the nuances are clearer with age... Anyway, a great summer read with your kids. #seacrowisland #childhoodclassics #holidays #summer #raisingreaders

julesG Strange that some books speak differently to us once we're grown up. 5mo
julesG Beautiful picture, btw 5mo
Emu Yes, it is funny. I remember that I liked the book, but more because of the stories of friendship and adventure. 5mo
Emu It is taken just on the border of Italy and Austria - fantastic views all around 😀 5mo

This is a book about family secrets, about PTSD and how this can affect a family for several generations.

Henrik_Madsen Oh, a fellow Dane on Litsy. Well at least another Danish reader! I read it when it came out and thought it was good but not great. 7mo

I read this for my 8 yr old daughter. I‘m sure she didn‘t get all the details (I know that I didn‘t), but I‘m really impressed with the seriousness of this book. Everything is explained so it is understandable to kids without leaving you with the feeling that it has been dumbed down for you.

“Man siger at den danske krones fremfærd i kolonierne er forbilledlig, der bliver taget godt hånd om folk. Det er der mange der kunne lære af, især englænderne der er kendte for at fare hårdt frem i de oversøiske besiddelser. Se nu blot her. Forvalteren nikket mod Bertel. Her i landet byder vi endda de indfødte til bords og bespiser dem.”
