Old is the new New

article image placeholderExcellent fiction from earlier eras
And so I feel like it's quite a relief to be free of the relentless pressure to keep up with the latest amazing title and follow all the reviews all the time. I mean, I still do that so happy New Year and new. I feel like old titles, old classics, books we've saved up and wanted to read for years. The time is now. Hi

Joy of rediscovery

And I also enjoyed the smell of all those years that have sunk into the Pardes of the book. Right. It's so old and so fragile and just wanted sensation. Really? So yes. To the old new, I guess, as you said, lovely. Thank you for this. Swell

Tiny kindle moments

So I'll keep you posted on how that works out in terms of discovery and sort of this sense of I guess less is more because maybe the restriction of that list will keep me occupied a bit in a way that it wouldn't be if I was just choosing books I want to read because I want to read them anyway, looking forward to this new experience

And so for me that definitely has been going through older books that I absolutely love and cherish and giving them new homes to friends and people in my life that I think would appreciate them. It means donating books to places or selling them that I think COVID use them or benefit from them
