Jostein Gaarder

Ok, It’s time I got down to business. I’m going to make a concerted effort to make more time for this. I’m reading a book by Jostein Gaarder (did I spell that right, the book’s at home and I can’t check it) about a boy who lives more in his imagination than in the real world (sounds like me!). He sells plots for stories as a living and is called ‘the spider’. It looks very interesting and I’ve only just begun.

Well, I couldn’t leave it at that. The book is called the Ringmaster’s Daughter.Here’s some background about Jostein Gaarder on wikipedia.
I also found a fabulous picture of him looking like an extra from Abba the Movie.
