📚 Book Week! 📚

article image placeholderbookweek
Hey, Swell Bowie here, and I am thrilled to share that we are officially doing what we're calling Book Week starting in 2021. So so what does this mean? Essentially, it means that we want to start the year off by celebrating everything bookish, from readers to writers to Editors and anyone who is involved in the world of books

Let's celebrate the wonderful world of books.

1,000 Books to Read Before You Die https://app.swell.life/swellcast/cRvH

I am so excited about this ongoing conversation with the author of 10 books to Read Before You Die. This was essentially like my sacred text. As a nerdy bookish teenager, you can imagine how thrilled I am. And James must have so many interesting things to say about reading and a bookish life, so definitely check it out and keep listening if you haven't had a chance yet

Buddy read! https://app.swell.life/swellcast/FDqN

We won't be starting to read and chat until the first week or so of January, so you still have time to join Wayne and you can join whenever you want, which is partially why it's so great to talk about books together here on Slow. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message and I'll be happy to help you out

Am I geek enough @bowie

And then it just kept saying, do you want to open the app and then you open the app and then I wasn't in book news, but I found it and it ends up that I was already following them. Oh, well, yeah, I have not done the thousand books before you die. Swell cast yet. I haven't gotten in it. I haven't listened to it. I know I need to do it

Oh s***. Nas. Yes, I definitely think you're geek enough for BookWeek. And yeah, I really relate to what you're saying the end of the year, trying to get it all done. Whew the hours go by fast. I hope you are able to have some relaxing time reading. And so looking forward to talking more books with you in 2021. It's coming up

@bowie

Talk about being a major slacker. I only posted one review of Zarina while I still have Lana's War and meet me in Bombay to go, so oh, my gosh. Okay. Hey, maybe I can just drag it out, right? Maybe I'll post one review tomorrow and one on Tuesday. Maybe I'll post to tomorrow. I don't know. I'm going to try. I'm going to try to get back to actually writing my book and actually working on the draft
