Triumph & Tragedy – I’ve got a couple of friends interested in playing this monthly and we had a great, speedy match last weekend. I’m still teaching them and won with some lucky peace token draws, but it was good for them to see: you have to attack the Germans at some point when you get to 1942/43!
Finished reading The 12 Week Year and it was very average. Here’s the summary: set goals on 12 week cycles, implement a weekly review and action system to drive progress towards those goals. Maintain a sense of urgency.
What I’m Playing
It was a week of light games with friends and family.
I’ve been contributing to Standard Ebooks over the past month or so, working on my first publication as a producer. A bit more about Standard Ebooks:
Standard Ebooks is a volunteer driven, not-for-profit project that produces lovingly formatted, open source, and free public domain ebooks.
Ebook projects like Project Gutenberg transcribe ebooks and make them available for the widest number of reading devices. Standard Ebooks takes ebooks from sources like Project Gutenberg, formats and typesets them using a carefully designed and professional-grade style guide, lightly modernizes them, fully proofreads and corrects them, and then builds them to take advantage of state-of-the-art ereader and browser technology.
Standard Ebooks aren’t just a beautiful addition to your digital library—they’re a high quality standard to build your own ebooks on.
My first book is Something New by P.G. Wodehouse. Producing it was enjoyable, tedious at times, and very rewarding. Reading the book was fun too – it is a short, humorous novel and if you are a Downton Abbey fan you’ll love the book.
