My latest addiction …

reading ! I used to read a lot when I was little, but at a certain age I had totally lost interest for the ancient passtime that is escapism. 2 reasons that renewed my interest: my love has a library in her living-room and shelfari.com.

Shelfari is a site that allows you to keep track of what you’ve read, want to read, etc … You can tag books, read other user’s reviews, write your own, rate the book, the possibilities are endless. It’s basicly an on-line bookclub which you can even integrate into your facebook-profile.

High Fidelity by Nick Hornby
is about Rob, a thirty-something record-collecor / shop-owner from London. While I was reading one of the final chapters of the book “The Nightfly” by Donald Fagen (Steely Dan) was mentioned. I walked over to my own record-collection (as I imagined Rob would) flipped through to the F section, pulled the album out and put it on the record player.

Best way to describe this album is easy listening. The cover says a lot about the sound and feel of the album. A late night radio show with some calm, soothing tunes.
