Mostly book-related

  • I am almost done with the second book of 2666. I continue to find Bolano fascinating... although my enthusiasm is now interspersed with depression, confusion and anxiety. When I put down my book and look up, I am surprised by the color of things around me. These are all signs of a good book, I think.
  • I asked a famous Bulgarian poet that I know from the internets to write me a reading list so I could catch up on contemporary Bulgarian fiction. Which he did. I LOVE the internets.
  • I asked my friends on twitter if they would be kind enough to send me above mentioned books to Freiburg. I am getting a package some time next week. What can I say, I LOVE the internets.
  • If you want a quick laugh, check out this interview with Jessa Crispin, editor and founder of one of the best book-blogs of all time: Bookslut. Question: Under what circumstances would you tell a lie? Answer: Under most circumstances.
