Jeg kom over artisten William Control for en liten stund siden og kom over denne fremføringa han har spilt inn av diktet "The Raven", skrevet av Edgar Allan Poe. Synes at stemmen og diktet passer veldig godt sammen.
As we're writing 2022 in two months, I figured out it was time to announce the 2022 Diversity Challenge. I've hosted it in 2019 and 2021, and decided to host it next year too. I’m not going to make any categories or levels for this challenge, as I want it to be a bit flexible. Read as many books as you feel like reading and yes, it can be children’s books, graphic novels, e-books, non-fiction, audio books, poetry and you-name-it.

As I keep the unread books seperate from the ones I've read, it's fairly easy to figure out what to read next. If I don't have a reading challenge/readathon in mind or some kind of seasonal read, such as horror during the autumn, I tend to use a TBR jar for a random pick. That said, I might suffer a bit of tsunduko though, as I may have purchased a book or two in which I'm
Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of A Christmas Carol by Philip Gooden and Charles Dickens through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review. Description from Goodreads Who can help a mean old man to love Christmas? How about a ghost? (…or three!) Scrooge’s heart is colder than snow, he’s richer than half the banks in England and meaner than, well, everyone. But when three seriously spooky ghosts turn up to take him on an adventure through time, he soon learns that being cold isn’t cool. Can he change his ways before it’s too late? About The Charles Dickens Children's Collection: Bah humbug! Who says the classics are just for adults?
