My first readathon

Hello dear reader(s)!

I hope you’re all doing well and that you had an amazing weekend, ‘cause I certainly had. 🙂 On Saturday 21st October I participated in Dewey’s 24 hour Readathon. It was my 1st ever readathon, and the event’s 10th anniversary. If you’re unfamiliar with the term here’s the explanation directly from their website liked above.

It’s sort of a reading challenge, only everyone participates at the same time. For 24 hours, we read books, post on social media about our reading, and visit other bookworms online. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day and win prizes. In recent years, this event has grown to encompass Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Goodreads, Litsy, a Facebook group, and other channels as well!

Reviewing Guy Gavriel Kay’s Children of Earth and Sky

Reviewing Guy Gavriel Kay’s Children of Earth and Sky

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today I’m attempting to write another review of a book (shock and awe for that) that unexpectedly became very important to me. I believe that everyone has some sort List of important books where all those special, very dear to your heart, life changing, or just special because of reasons books go. Those books can special because you read them at a very difficult time in your life and helped you get through that period, and because of this that particular book will always have a place in your heart. Or perhaps that book helped you change or form an opinion on a particular subject, or a whole genre of literature, or influenced and inspired you to do something you thought you couldn’t do.

Knjiga protiv e-knjige

Knjiga protiv e-knjige

Iako o ovoj temi razmišljam otkako sam otkrila e-knjige i dobila prvi Kindle u ruke odlučila sam otipkat nešto o ovome nakon što sam neki dan pročitala članak o budućnosti knjiga u The Economistu i članak u Lifehackeru pro et contra knjiga i e-knjige. Osobno meni je debata o knjigama i e-knjigama pomalo suluda. U svakom slučaju raspravljamo o knjigama, nije da baš raspravljamo o knjiga kontra stripa ili knjiga kontra televizije. U jednom i drugom slučaju imamo tekst, samo nam je tekst predočen u različitom formatu.

No s obzirom da neki ljudi vole biti formato-puristi u svemu, pa tako i u raspravi o knjigama i e-knjigama ljudi vode žestoke debate oko toga što je bolje, pravilnije, više kanonski etc. Digresija: ukoliko vas ovo nekim slučajem nekako podsjeti na raspravu koju islamski ekstremisti vode oko interpretacije islama, pa nećete puno faliti. Sve se u konačnici svodi na nečiji pogled na svijet koji netko smatra ispravnim, a netko ne. Kraj digresije. Doduše najbolji mi je argument bio u stilu „ali e-knjiga nije prava knjiga!“. Wow! Nisam znala da imamo i lažne knjige uz prave knjige. Amazing…
