[Opinion] What is literature? A small statement as an answer to…

Today I want to share a post from my personal facebook timeline (which I made public)
about an article from a german media site/broadcaster which made waves in the manga community.

The articles can be read here (all articles are german only):

Original article from Mister Otte @SWR
Official statement from the Leipzig bookfair
an article as an answer to the original article by Mr. Otte

I not only wrote about the article itself I also asked myself: what is literature?
Or at least I wrote about how I know the term, how I explore the term.
Maybe people disagree with me and have another opinion. But maybe people think it is worth to read my opinion about it. Share your opinion if you like. 🙂 It’s very appreciated. 🙂

Catching up some entries – update

My dear follower,

sorry for the delay of some posts, for the silence on the blog and the lack of interaction. The blog is NOT dead, of course not but I was so busy the last 2 weeks I had trouble to catch up the deadlines a bit and the daily things exhausted me… Anyway. No need to be sad. 😀

I wanted to inform you that I TRY to write a few reviews over the holiday, maybe tomorrowe there will be the reviews I have a delay for.

I also will do a few editorial things and organize new entries for 2017. I plan to start the year with a few things, one of the biggest plans are having author interviews. I actually got answers of several and have to manage the best time for all who are interested. :3

So please stay tuned. :3

Sorry for the short updates the last days… I hope to fix it for the next year, but I assume since I will have a bit more time. December was helluva month. xD

I wish you all Merry Christmas or the holiday you celebrate, a happy New Year and a great start into 2017.

Kisses & hugs,
Mikku-chan

Throwback Thursday #9

This feature should “throw” you back a year ago. This feature is made by me and I’ll post my read books in the CW (calender week) the year before.
I explain it: it’s the year 2016, I throw back to 2015. Every Thursday I look up which CW we have and go this exact CW in the year before back. 2017 I throw back to 2016 and so on. 😉
But let’s see how it works. 😉

Delay in a few posts…

My dear follower,

I am so sorry I’m so behind my schedule. I missed a few weekly posts, but those will be posted later (they will have their “original” date, so don’t be confused).

Because of work and heavy shifts I have to delay a few things I wished I have had written a long time ago… ORZ *sigh*

But don’t worry, in the next days there will be a few posts, maybe not that much but there will be. :3

Tomorrow there will be a teaser for the review of the book All in Fear, an anthology by several gay romance authors. :3 So stay tuned and check it out. 😉

 

Kisses & hugs,
Mikku-chan ❤
