Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts #55

June 23, 2016 | 7 comments


1. I’ve moved. I’m now a resident of Iceland. I’ve got an Icelandic social security number, a bank account, a phone number, and an office at the University. It as all very official.

2. On my first day here, my friend took me to the stores with the best cheese and the best ice cream. (Because, priorities.)

3. I still need to find an apartment. At the moment, I’m staying in the campus housing (which is very convenient since I can see my office window from the kitchen and has a 5 minute walk to work) but it’s only a temporary solution.

4. I don’t have a TV, but that is ok. More time to read.

5. I haven’t really been paying attention to the emails I’ve been getting about the Apple eBooks antitrust lawsuit, so yesterday I got a nice surprise when I received a credit of $64 in my Amazon account from the settlement. I’m definitely spending it on more books, and it doesn’t count like breaking my book buying ban for the year, right?
