Weekend Reads #113

Friday, January 24, 2020

I didn't feel the Blue Monday four days ago, but today I'm feeling as if January will never end! I'm such a homebody yet I'm cold at home (my fingers are super cold right now) because the insulation in our building sucks, and I can always turn the AC on but I'm kind of afraid of the next electricity bills. 😅 One thing I've been doing lately to battle the cold: reading! I've had a huge list of books to be read for ages, but this is finally the year I decided to start tackling it! Unfortunately, it means I'm making no progress on my two other lists—one for movies, the other one for TV series—but I'm finally reading almost every free minute of the day, and as a result, it's the 24th today and I read seven (7!!) books. I almost forgot how great reading is. (Besides the good old WWW, which I've obviously been doing on a regular or semi-regular basis :)) Highly recommend it! Anyway, you're here for the links, so here they are...

The case against contemporary feminism. I loved this: “Somewhere along the way toward female liberation, it was decided that the most effective method was for feminism to become universal.  […] And the people who decided this forgot that for something to be universally accepted, it must become as banal, as non-threatening and ineffective as possible.”

This is cute 😊

What is a personal life, and can I have one? I was so happy to realise I do indeed have it and wouldn’t trade it for the world. I also think this is a very American feature, to blend in the boundaries of work and personal life. Us Europeans value our time after work, our weekends and our vacations!

Enjoy the weekend!

Love, Tihana
