Reading recommendations in the Time of Corona

Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back! If you haven’t read my previous blog post Reading in the Time of Corona – you can click on the link and have a read. Basically I muse what kind of texts (books, audiobooks, comics, manga, magazines) one should look for and what to avoid like the plague. 😀 This is the continuation of that text in which I’m going to give a few lots and lots reading recommendations. Apparently. 😀

Review: A Million Years in a Day

Review: A Million Years in a Day

Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to another weekend instalment of Nessa reads and reviews! At the beginning of the month I posted my December reading list and Greg Jenner’s A Million Years in a Day: A Curious History of Daily Life has been one of my picks.

Bookshelf corner: December reading list

Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to the blog! Can you believe it’s already December? It’s finally properly cold here in the Northern Hemisphere, snow is here in those parts that do get snow and you can just feel the festive mood in the air. 🙂 Since it’s cold outside and it’s getting darker earlier you naturally want to stay home where it’s nice and warm. And since you’re already at home why not make yourself a cup of tea/coffee/something a bit stronger 🙂 (hey, I don’t judge 😀 ), find a comfy place to curl up and read something. I’ve mentioned in my previous chatty post that I’m making a reading list for December. Now that it’s finally finished I’m going to walk you through it. Let’s get cracking!
