Every time somebody interrupts me while I‘m trying to read this, I get more and more annoyed. 😒 I don‘t want to put it down, how dare people expect me to work at work! 😂 #sistersofthelostnation #nickmedina #louisianalit #nativeamericanlit

Siri Hustvedt and Paul Auster are sitting in the white tent on the right and talking about novels, literature, life and all the stuff. While listening to them, I'm looking out over the ocean and feeling very zen ??

Siri Hustvedt: "Novels are the places we can have experiences we wouldn't have had otherwise" - Preach!

Unfortunately, I didn't get in to see Zadie Smith talk, so I have to settle for seeing her on screen. She's still awesome, though! 👌

scripturient She is so amazing! I talked to her shortly last week and it was a bit intimidating. 😂 6y

I don't even know what I'm more excited about - my breakfast or starting this beautiful book 😍😍

Simona Your breakfast is winner for me, because right now - I'm really hungry 😋 6y
Elisa Wow, that's cover 😍 6y
julesG Both! 😍😍😍 Wish I could come over for some waffles. 6y
TK421 Those are the most beautiful waffles that I have ever seen. I need more waffles in my life. 6y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Wow!!! That looks yummy 😋 6y
CoverToCoverGirl Lovely way to start a Saturday! 😁 6y
Suet624 That's looks beautiful AND delicious. 6y
Kalalalatja @JazzFeathers I agree! ?? @erzascarletbookgasm it is! I always thought all waffles had this shape until I got waffles while travelling. Apparantly, this is not the normal waffle "look" ? @Marchpane the food definitely was! Now I just need to read the book to see if it is too ? @nabilareads they were soooo good ?? @Simona my main focus was on the breakfast as well. I didn't want to get nutella all over my book ? 6y
Kalalalatja @Elisa I love it! 😍 @julesG I wish you could have some! They were awesome! 👌 @TK421 don't we all! I'm seriously considering buying a waffle maker after eating these waffles 👌 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks it really was! 😋 @CoverToCoverGirl and when it is followed by book shopping it is an even better Saturday! 😄 @Suet624 it was just as good as it looked 😍😋 6y
BarbaraBB I absolutely loved that book. Mine didn't have that beautiful cover...! 6y
Kalalalatja @BarbaraBB It's the Danish edition, and it's completely gorgeous 😍 6y
Lmstraubie Yum! 6y
elkeOriginal That is a ridiculously beautiful cover. And waffle!! 6y
Kalalalatja @elkeo one of the few times, where I chose the Danish translation over the English original. All because of that cover 😍 and Jenny Offill said it was beautiful too 😄 6y
Cinfhen That breakfast 😍 6y
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen it might have been the best I've ever had 😍😍 6y

I found out some things about Colson Whitehead during his talk today:

1. He's an e-reader kind of man (when travelling)
2. He doesn't really like people all that much
3. He's funny!

#louisianalit #bookwormontour

DrSabrinaMoldenReads Haha...I say that I don't like people either. 6y
Kalalalatja @Joyfulmimi haha me too, sometimes 😄 6y

Kalalalatja @Joyfulmimi I do too, most of the time. I kinda have to with the job I'm planning on getting (psychologist) 😄 6y
DrSabrinaMoldenReads I have been a psychologist for over 30 years 😘 @Kalalalatja (edited) 6y
Kalalalatja @Joyfulmimi oh I didn't know that, but how awesome! 👏 6y
DrSabrinaMoldenReads Thanks! Time to retire though. ☺️ 6y
scripturient I met him in Edinburgh on Monday. Such a nice man. :) 6y
Kalalalatja @scripturient he seems like the kind of man you would want to drink coffee with and just hear him talk 👍 6y
scripturient True. :) Where was this, btw? I saw that Zadie Smith and Paul Auster were there as well. It's almost like a traveling circus, considering they were all in Scotland last week. I knew that popstars did that but writers... 😂 6y
Kalalalatja @scripturient lit was at the Louisiana Museum of Art, just north of Copenhagen. And apparantly, that's what writers do! Some of them talked about how they are travelling all over at the moment 😄 6y

Imbolo Mbue was great! Apparantly, she started to write after reading Toni Morrisson's Song of Solomon, and she had never planned to be a writer 📚

#louisianalit #bookwormontour

DeborahSmall Fantastic. Where is it being held? X 6y
Kalalalatja @DeborahSmall in a Danish museum called Louisiana. They are having a literature festival this weekend, and so far it has been great! 👏 6y
DeborahSmall I thought you were in the US! Have a great weekend 💕 6y
