I feel privileged to be able to stay at home and only worry about not having enough time for reading. Well, that is not exactly true and I do worry a lot actually but I also know and I am aware that me sitting and thinking won’t help me or anyone else for that matter so I’ve implemented some strategies into actions and I also created this list of books to read during Covid-19 time.
My Year of Rest and Relaxation av Ottessa Moshfegh er en eksistensiell bok som jeg ikke har lest på lenge og som ikke vil forlate deg likegyldig selv om hele historien handler om ønsket å ta pause og sove i hele året.
My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh is an existential book I haven’t read in a long time and one which won’t leave you neutral even though the whole story is about desire of taking break and falling asleep for entire year.
I’ve been meaning to write about my local library ever since I started this blog but there are so many books I’d been reading and not reviewing that writing about anything else than book’s reviews was beyond my capacity. But I always state that I do not buy many books at least not physical ones due to my minimalist lifestyle and nomad principles but that doesn’t stop me from reading also physical books a lot. Since I don’t have many people around me who read books and can lend me some, the only place I can get books is a library but I don’t complain.
