I think someone needs to fix the cover art in the listing. Also, having just finished this, I‘m gonna need a hug. Also, don‘t plan to see anything but YA and Romance content from me in the near future. Yikes my heart has been through the wringer. Really good audiobook as well.

The Writing of the Disaster | Maurice Blanchot
post image

The first line of Maurice Blanchot‘s The Writing of the Disaster reads, ‘The disaster ruins everything, all the while leaving everything intact.‘ Teju Cole writes about art in troubled times and he quotes this phrase. And, yes, that‘s it exactly. Incredibly astute commentary puts into text what I‘ve been feeling about the pandemic. https://www.artbasel.com/news/a-defense-of-art-in-troubled-times

I have to admit the first book was boring (the novel is divided into four sections called “books”) but I read a comment that said it really picked up after Baz comes back. And that is completely 💯 true. I‘m also totally in love with the audiobook narrator and must now listen to everything he‘s ever made.

Actually, I use some for work like Twitter and Pinterest, and some for chonky kitties like FB. Insta and TikTok are my book media. 3. To finally have in my hands Aristotle and Dante book 2.

Two days late…that‘s how this whole week has gone. 1. I love all the colors!!! Especially vivid ones. Bright pink. Bright orange. Any hue of blue or purple. And my most fav color at the moment is a light blue turquoise. 2. Color doesn‘t influence my TBR but cover design def does. I will read a book with a bad cover (cough, cough, Playing the Palace)… but I will judge it for that

As I sat home at that same time, I wondered what effect the pandemic would have on our books, movies, and other forms of creative expression. As we grapple with a world that is opening up but is still deeply at risk, I‘m still wondering. I look forward to the time this is all a difficult memory.

Nutmegnc @BkClubCare it only counts if you change the dates and it doesn‘t let you add a second date, so it erases the first.
