So there is a #mastobookclub now... They're looking for recommendations on a book to begin with. Genre: Fantasy. I recommended Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt. I've been wanting to read it for a while now, so it would be great to do that in company of some other Mastonauts.
Er is een tijdje geleden een influx geweest. Maar veel van die accounts zijn nu niet meer actief. Het blijft een beetje schrapen. Ik ben zelf ook nog een beetje zoekende, ben een tijdje helemaal weg geweest. Ook in welke taal ik toot vind ik nog lastig te bepalen. In Engels wel veel meer interactie.
And one of the distractions was me going birding and discovering a rough-legged buzzard flying by, which was a new bird for my home patch, so not a bad weekend after all...
Aaahhh just finished grading a thesis and preparing tomorrow's course... That took me longer than expected (had hoped to get it done Friday). As always, I ask myself why I didn't start earlier, why I let myself be distracted by literally anything else... However, still feeling great now that it's done.
Using Mastalab (Android) and really loving it! Multiple accounts with easy switching in-between makes this an ideal app for me.
@suntzufuntzu You get out and walk towards the bus stop. Once seated in the bus, you reach for the dial again and you notice that touching it makes your vision go blurry. You touch it again. Blurry sight again. You touch it and keep your finger on top of the dial for a little longer. The haziness disappears and suddenly you hear a voice. Not a human voice, no, something infinitely more subtle. "Come to me" it says.
Hey, I just found out that the book I'm reading (a kind of personal anthology of the books that influenced Primo Levi) is essentially also published online: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2001/jun/02/arts.highereducation You should take a look at it, the selection Levi made is surprising and inspirational!
