There are some books which you hear the names of and you think, okay, this is going to be one delicious, lip-smacking book about some delicious, lip-smacking food. Instead, it turns out to be about something else altogether – a headily intriguing mix of the sweetness of the little joys in life, the bitterness of harsh reality, the sourness of anger, the saltiness of sorrow, the bland taste of helplessness, that spicy tang of enthusiastic motivation – and it fills you up with not only emotions, but also with the reiterated knowledge that the world is way more complicated and intricately connected than we think it is. And Hot Stew is one such book.
We’re already in the fourth month of the year and though I had thought that things were going to get super crazy, they aren’t as bonkers as I thought they would be. Yet. I’m not going to be complacent about this work because there is a lot. But I do love it, so even though I will say over and over again that it is a lot of work – which is a fact – it isn’t a complaint in any way. I love doing this and I love that there are people who are loving this content. Even if the number of channel members is just 4 right now.
How do you seamlessly move from one month into the other? I thought I had the answer. I thought it was, “By finishing the books you started in a month, in that month itself, and not taking it into the next.” But apparently that isn’t the answer. Apparently, seamless moving on is unrealistic if you want it to happen in all months.
Nevertheless, I’ve taken to telling myself that it’s okay to overlap, especially because of the shitstorm that 2021 has been so far. And it’s true, especially when I’ve managed to stay dedicated to posting on BookTube!
In today’s blog post, I talk about how bad 2021 has been so far and the books I want to read in April 2021. There are a couple of books that I brought in from March that I will finish before I start on the other books, but okay. I’m hoping to make April a better reading month than the sorry excuse of March was!
Every bookworm and book hoarder’s problem is that our to-be-read pile never seems to end. What’s more, we keep adding to these piles and then lament that we have nothing to read. Is it our fault? Absolutely not! Is it anybody else’s fault? Absolutely not! It’s just fate. Destiny. It’s written in the stars. That’s all.
So it is with this “knowledge” that I list out all the 470+ books on my TBR in this post. Hope you like it!
I wasn’t able to post the weekly roundup last Sunday, so this week, I’ll be posting a roundup of all the videos I posted between 15th and 28th March, 2021. I took a little break because my mental and physical health were both out of whack. But I’m hoping to get back in the fray, especially since I’ve opened up Channel Memberships for my channel.
I’ve started channel memberships on my channel. From April 2021 onwards, I will make bonus content for people who become channel members. The regular schedule will remain, but subscribers who are members will see a lot of extra, bonus videos – polls, posts, videos, book reviews, and vlogs – just for their eyes.
Today’s blog post is my weekly roundup of all the videos I’ve posted to my BookTube channel this past week. It didn’t all go to plan because there were a number of factors that weighed in and made me move around videos and posts and what not. But I did manage to upload 3 videos this week, as against the 4 that I had planned. And that’s not bad. At least that’s what I’m telling myself. XD
I wrote this article a long time ago, when I was battling other issues. And I now wonder how time works. At every point in time, issues differ and our reactions to them differ. But we’re always battling something. Constantly. The rays of the sun slanted down on the road that extended towards the farContinue reading “Fly Away…”
