[Feature]#LoveAroundTheWorld-Challenge

This challenge got my attention when I was going through my twitter timeline and saw that Laberladen, a German bookblogger participated. My interest was picked. πŸ™‚

But what is this LoveAroundTheWorld Challenge?

Saskia from Life With Saskia (the blog is in German, so are the posts) started this challenge and the rules seem easy:

  • Write a post about the topic love/spread love; this means you can dedicate the post to a special person, write about any topic which is connected to “love”, you can write to a beloved person (directly, in a letter) or just spread your love (you can hug others, you can do something nice for your people around you etc.) and tell about it.
  • Rule #1 is only: do somerthing which is connected to love
  • at the end of the post you tag 7 people but it’s up to you how many you chose. πŸ™‚ those who are tagged are welcome to leave a small comment (with their blog post)
  • For those who don’t blog: you can participate also; do sth. nice for people around you, write old friends, be helpful to neighbours or simply have a smile for everybody you meet, doesn’t matter if it’s in the office, the subway/tram/train or in the supermarket πŸ™‚
  • If you like you can leave a comment
  • But: no stress, don’t feel forced to participate; but if you like, tell about your experience and spread love by yourself

The rules are set. Happy reading with my post. πŸ™‚

[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. πŸ™‚ It’s very appreciated. πŸ™‚
