My friends and students know that I don’t have a television. I prefer to use my brain. I’m currently reading The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson.

I just started it two days ago, but it’s a charming novel about a centarian who decides to escape his retirement home on his 100th birthday and begins an adventure when he chooses to steal a suitcase which ends up containing fifty million dollars. The novel alternates between past memories and anecdotes and describes his daring escape and wicked adventure. It’s refreshing to see someone write about the elderly. I highly recommend it.
