The Postman Knock #4

Hi, folks!

Hopefully by the time you are reading this I'm away for a long weekend to Brighton (as in UK, not US!).
I'm praying that the hot weather will hold and I'll be meeting my old friends, having nice meals and catching up on everything that's happened like mad.

Not much on the bookish front this weekend...

Thanks to Edelweiss and Simon & Schuster! Both books have been on my wishlist and I'm very exited to read them.

Last Sunday I said that August would be my month for catching up on reading my paperbacks.
Not only that, I've decided that I will not be accepting or requesting ebooks for review until I go through my present backlog, and I also won't buy any ebooks or paperbacks until I'm down to the last 10 of them in total.
It's a huge decision, but my buying habit spiralled out of control in the last few months and I have to reduce my TBR pile to a more manageable size as I'm not reading as fast as I did last year anymore. Be that my new job at fault or my general tiredness in the end of the day, but the fact is I add 6 to 12 books to my actual TBR pile every week and read only about 3 of them, and I'm very unhappy about the current ratio.

So far I have 85 books (18 of which are my review copies). If I reduce them to 10 by November, I'll be ecstatic.

So, hello new resolution!
Anyone wants to join in?

I will still feature the occasional book on Sunday and will be telling you about my progress and reading highlights of the week, if that's alright with you, guys?

I'm leaving you with another fabulous video from TED where musician plays the audience.
This is unbelievably beautiful and makes you smile...

In this fun, 3-min performance from the World Science Festival, musician Bobby McFerrin uses the pentatonic scale to reveal one surprising result of the way our brains are wired.
Listening to Bobby McFerrin sing may be hazardous to your preconceptions. Side effects may include unparalleled joy, a new perspective on creativity, rejection of the predictable, and a sudden, irreversible urge to lead a more spontaneous existence.

Happy Sunday!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
