New sapphic book review! Soul Food Stories (anthology)

Saw the exhibition A World in Common: Contemporary African Photography, at Tate Modern.

Happy to find this on the future of the in the bookshop:

I just completed the first in the four part series of novels by Vilhelm Moberg (1898-1973) - The Emigrants - written between 1949 and 1959, that describes a Swedish family's emigration to Minnesota in the mid-19th century. A fantastic book.

The novels have been interpreted to film a few times - The Emigrants (based on the first two novels) and The New Land (based on the second two), both starring Max von Sydow and Liv Ullmann, directed by Jan Troell in 1971-2 and more recently in 2021, a film by Erik Poppe starring Gustaf Skarsgrd and Lisa Carlehed.

Moberg committed suicide by drowning himself in a lake outside his house. He left a note to his wife saying: "The time is twenty past seven I go to seek in the lake the eternal sleep. Forgive me, I could not endure."

"Welcome to Slaughter Gulch, Mr. Carnby..."

Who else remembers Alone in the Dark 3

Just catalogued this one into THE VIDEO GAME LIBRARY

I was in Brazil this year and I could finally get some of my old books and bring them back to France.

And there was this one, "Discourse on Method" by Ren Descartes, a French philosopher. (Do you know the quote: "I think, therefore I am" It's from this book).

This was the first book I had to read in law school (only the first 4 chapters were useful), and it was a good start. It was a great read at that moment in my life, and that professor became my favorite.

A tale of intrigue, violence, and immaculately groomed mustaches

The oldest lady, for she was no crone, adjusted the hood of her black cloak uncomfortably, before passing a hand over the traditional cauldron. A cup of water could do, but a cauldron was right and proper, for all things foretelling.

"Netherfield Park is let."

Read it before anyone else!


Books prepared to borrow in "happy bags" in a small countryside library in Japan.

I'm not 100% sure, but I reckon the idea is that if you don't want to spend time on choosing books, grab one of these and you just read whatever. Bit of gambling excitement

It is totally unthinkable for me. I read books continuously, but have a queue for several years, and growing. Still, a happy sight.

Strange night! Strangest in this, that so soon as dawn had come, I, who had talked with God, crept out of the house like a rat leaving its hiding placea creature scarcely larger, an inferior animal, a thing that for any passing whim of our masters might be hunted and killed. Perhaps they also prayed confidently to God. Surely, if we have learned nothing else, this war has taught us pitypity for those witless souls that suffer our dominion.

Air beds' reputation for comfort and encouraging a healthy sleep regime was poor. Those in the Medical study of sleep have the following saying:

"The balloon is a harsh mattress."

An interesting historical note, the saying first came into use with Circus Clowns in the late 1800s.
