Hmm
















Two paperbacks nuzzle up to each other, perhaps uneasily, in my bag: How to become slightly happier and get a bit more done by Guardian columnist Oliver Burkeman and Melancholy, a novel by the Norwegian writer Jon Fosse.

Today's small stone.

That tension between melancholy and happiness. We all revel in it.

Do let us know how the books are...

Those titles sound like they would have a lot to say to one another. Glad I found your place- (through AROS) Have a great rest of the day.

Natalie, I like it very much so far. He's very clever, funny and sensible.
