DCDiverseRead-RA

Hello, followers of the chain. At least, I hope if you got there it’s because of the chain, the discussion chain.
Luck assisted me again, because I’m still in Abruzzo and I’ll probably depart next Sunday morning. But nothing is sure. So yep, I’m still publishing the post thanks to my phone hotspot.
I’m so glad it’s keeping on and not leaving me in the middle of the nothing.

Anyway, for other details, please consult the information’s I’ll leave down here. As the opening post of the discussion, I’ll host the general presentation and the list of the participants.Read More »

First of all, I’m sorry for the post delay, but two days ago I had a terrible night that included not getting sleep, getting it just too be wake up an alarm and get very disturbing nightmare for the rest of the night. I ended up living on one hour of actual decent sleep. So, you can imagine why I was late to the blogging party.

Anyway, today post will move around an important topic that will probably make me fight with some reader, or get a pat pat on my back for approvation. I’ve been thinking a lot about it, why it irritates me so much and how much, we as reader, influence the view of a character and not always in a good way.Read More »

Il Salone di Torino ||The Salone, the readers and the fascists

salotto

Hello, bookish folks! Today post is a special. It wasn’t programmed and I wrote it still semi-fuelled by the rage I felt few days ago. Everything stemmed because of some dreadful event and announcements, along with the not surprising and unsupportive reaction of many Italian bloggers.
Same reasons why this post will be written both in English and Italian.
