juliefonskov Gave my sister the Iliad of Homer for her birthday this weekend. How pretty is this Gyldendal edition? Would look fine next to the same version of The Odyssey! Am I the only one who gives book-presents to everyone I know? #givingwhatiwishformyself 1w
  •   prof_lit @juliefonskov Nah, I do the same. But I make a point against classics or depthy literature. Cause that engenders some death glares 1w
  •   juliefonskov @prof_lit Haha, true! I would never have dared buying this one for my sis (or anyone - maybe myself even) if I didn't know she was into that kinda thing. But I feel like books are so versatile that you can find something in everyone's interest, even if they didn't think of wishing for it in book form. 1w
  •   prof_lit @juliefonskov Yeah, when I get the inkling of getting a book for someone I just have to make sure they'll enjoy it. I got my best friend, an atheist, "God's Disappointed In You" for XMas. 1w
  •   juliefonskov @prof_lit That's hilarious and brilliant! There's something about everything and it can be super fun to find that exactly right one for someone you know. 1w
  •   prof_lit @juliefonskov You're exactly right. And he ended up really enjoying it. Hope your sis enjoys your gift. 1w

juliefonskov "People are afraid to merge on freeways in Los Angeles". I'm dedicating my day to Bret Easton Ellis #novelsundertwohundredpagesftw 2w
  •   juliefonskov @prof_lit It's a deal! 2w
  •   prof_lit @juliefonskov Right on! 2w
  •   juliefonskov @robtoknight @densidsteromantiker @prof_lit So I finished it, and I'm very sad to say, I didn't like it one bit 😕 but I guess that's also the beauty of literature - that it's such personal experiences. If you're interested, I wrote some stuff about why I borderline hated it on bookroom.bloggersdelight.dk 3d
  •   prof_lit @juliefonskov Hahah sorry to hear you borderline hated it. Is it enough to say that he wrote it for a creative writing class in his freshman year of college? It's very amateurish, but I still recommend Rules of Attraction 3d
  •   juliefonskov Haha yeah, at least it was pretty short. I mean, it is impressive to even write something to be published at that age. I just don't understand why it was I guess it just really comes down to whether you felt entertained or got something out of reading it and I didn't. But the writing style was my biggest issue - didn't do it for me. 3d
  •   prof_lit @juliefonskov Honestly, it's not my favorite of his works, or even in the top 5. It janks a bit and the characters never have time to breathe. Part of the reason why Ellis wrote Imperial Bedrooms was to address these concerns, "Less Than Zero" is played off as a book written by another character in it and not the truth. Although, I do get the issues on writing style, he loves his detached protags. Still...Rules is so entertaining. Movie more so. 3d
  •   robtoknight That's fair enough I do get where you are coming from and I do agree I just enjoyed as there was a few moments of clarity within some conversation that applied to me :) rules of attractions was the first book I read and I really enjoyed that its does tail off a little but still not sure you would like it so much if you didn't less then zero so not sure I'd recommend it to you :) I've yet to read american psycho but a friends swears I will love it 3d

juliefonskov Reading my way through the Harry Potter-series for the first time, I must say that it is a delight to keep the beautiful books of this Bloomsbury edition on my shelf! Every time I finish a book, I write a couple of sentences about my experience on the blog: Bookroom.bloggersdelight.dk - go give it a look 3w

juliefonskov My sisters didn't quite understand my need to bring this collection of fetish comics home with me when we went bookshopping the other day. I am confident, however, it'll make a nice alternative to the classic coffee table book #coffeewithcreamandbondagewhynot? 3w

juliefonskov Summertime indeed. Thought I would share this very pretty version of Janne Teller's "Nothing" (certainly one of my all-time faves). What are you guys reading in the sun? #anthonpierresaysnothingmeansanything #isaysummermeanseverything 3w
  •   millehoeegh Jeg har faktisk aldrig læst andet af Teller, men måske man burde prøve det 1w
  •   juliefonskov @millehoeegh Jeg er helt enig! Jeg ville også ønske jeg havde nogle af alle de ark med arbejdsspørgsmål, vi besvarede undervejs i læsningen, så jeg kunne se min daværende tolkning sort på hvidt. For jeg har lidt svært ved at huske andet, end at jeg syntes den var spændende i forhold til hendes andre værker, har jeg næsten lige læst hendes debutroman, "Odins Ø", som var lidt speciel. "Kom" har jeg hørt rigtig meget godt om til gengæld! det bliver nok den næste, jeg giver mig i kast med i hendes forfatterskab. 1w
  •   millehoeegh Ja, jeg ærgrer mig også tit over ikke at have gemt den opgave. Jeg husker, at vi fik rigtig mange arbejdsspørgsmål, og at jeg virkelig brugte lang tid og dybe teenageovervejelser på den det kunne have været sjovt at læse i dag! Det lyder interessant, måske jeg skulle tilføje dem til min læseliste. 1w
  •   juliefonskov Ja, men det var en anden tid - haha! Det hele blev skrevet i hånden for mit vedkommende, og så går papirerne typisk tabt. Øv øv. 1w
  •   millehoeegh Haha præcis! folkeskoleelever nu til dags kan slet ikke forestille sig, hvor meget blod, sved, tårer og ømme hænder det krævede at gå i skole dengang 1w
  •   juliefonskov @millehoeegh Haha, dengang var skrivekrampe en arbejdsskade der blev taget seriøst! 1w
  •   millehoeegh Haha og det var det bare! 1w

juliefonskov I had almost left the book store without buying anything this time, when my eyes fell on this one. 'The Danish civil war 2018-24' for a hundred kroners. How could I pass on that? It's been on the wish list since it came out, and I think I'll have to move some stuff around on my reading list to clear out space for this one right away 🇩🇰 4w
  •   heidiarendal Fedt fedt fedt @juliefonskov .. Er den god? Er selv lige blevet færdig med 'Mount københavn' 🏼🏼 skal så meget have denne her også 4w
  •   juliefonskov @heidiarendal Jeg har først købt den her i formiddags og har en bog, jeg skal have færdiglæst, før turen kommer til borgerkrigen, så skal ikke udtale mig endnu. Men jeg glæder mig, det tegner godt! Har ikke læst Mount København, men det kan være, den skal have et skud, hvis denne lever op til forventninger 4w
  •   heidiarendal Mount København er så fed 🏼🏼 en novellesamling sat sammen med mellem tekst, eller hvad man nu siger. Bestemt værd at læse. Men jeg må ned at have borgerkrigen 🏼🏼 den lyder nemlig super fed 4w
  •   juliefonskov @heidiarendal Ja, den lyder i hvert fald ligeså fantasifuld som borgerkrigen - slog den lige op men hvis du skal have fat i borgerkrigen, så er den i hvert fald til 100 kr i Bog & Idé lige nu 4w
  •   heidiarendal Great. Så må jeg vist lige derned i morgen🏼🏼 tak @juliefonskov 🏼 4w
  •   juliefonskov @heidiarendal God plan 4w

juliefonskov Accidentally entered several book stores on pay day. It's quite alright, though, cause summer has finally come to Cph. So I can now work on tanning my legs to be a slightly less blinding shade of white whilst educating myself on Mr. Lovecraft's writings. Not bad at all 4w

juliefonskov I've decided to try and break my OCD-obsession with keeping my books in perfect condition by following all instructions in Wreck This Journal. I think of it as sort of a shock treatment. Cracking the spine was my first personal win. #imdeterminedtowreckitperfectly... 2mon

juliefonskov After having re-read and once again whole-heartedly fallen in love with Janne Teller's 'Intet' ('Nothing') I have thrown myself into reading her debut novel, 'Odins Ø' ('Odin's Island') #odiniswaymorenaivethanihadhimimagined 2mon

juliefonskov Had this handsome man introduce me to true American lifestyle last week. It included grilled cheese sandwiches, Mimosas in the morning, doggy bags, red plastic cups and sunburnt feet (cause Florida). Back in Dk and longing for those palm trees more than ever 3mon
