Literature, poetry, lots of books and just some stuff I write

The Ophelinha Gazette#1: fun, lit nerd articles and anecdotes



I don’t know about you lot, but I never seem to find enough time to read everything I would like to. And I am not talking about books (although, sadly, my to-read pile on my bedside table is getting insanely high, and my Kindle is literally exploding).

No, I am talking about all the fun literary facts and nerd anecdotes that I keep finding and saving on my Iphone, my reader, my pc, Word files or printing and..well, they finish on my bedside table as well.

So I thought I’d compile a little gazette of lit-nerd anecdotes to catch up with during your weekend. Enjoy!
