Even though the burning of the Koran seems to have been called off (or is it? I can’t seem to keep up with the changing opinions on this one), I still want to share this Librarything initiative because I like the idea so much: An Impromptu Interfaith Solidarity Readathing that is being held this Saturday. There is never too much reading about each other’s religion going on, so please consider joining.
The TBR pile is teasing me and distracting me from other reading plans. It keeps whispering that there is a whole library at home, so why go out and buy or loan other books? But it is so hard to resist! One of these days I need a proper resolution for the mountains of TBR books.
Music: The Veils (my all-time-favourite, you-have-to-listen-to-this, or-better-yet-go-see-them-live, band) has released their new album "Time Stays, We Go". It is as good, perhaps even better, than their previous three.
Other: Life is incredibly busy lately, which means that I cannot be on the internet as regularly as I'd like. Apologies if your comment and/or email has not received a prompt reply: I aim to catch up soon.
