Mer trøbbel for Amazon.

– Det har vist seg at Amazon ikke betalte mer enn omlag 0.1% skatt av omsetningen sin i Storbritannia i fjor. Dette har ikke falt i god jord, og nå oppfordres det til boikott.

– Det ble før jul klart at finansdirektøren i Aschehoug hadde underslått et millionbeløp. Nå kommer det for dagen at det dreier seg om 9,4 millioner kr, fem millioner mer enn han først innrømmet. Forlagssjef Mads Nygaard forteller at underslaget har preget dem i stor grad.

Er det null profitt i litteraturen i Zimbabwe?

– Politiet i Wilmington har satt i gang et litt annerledes prosjekt: Etter å ha merket seg mangelen på barnebøker i mange hjem de har besøkt, bestemte de seg for å dele ut bøker selv.

Derfor leser vi mer i flokk.

– Ikke alle er like imponert over skriveriene til Jo Nesbø. Val McDermid, for eksempel.

I am participating in SFF180's Space Opera September, and I chose Becky Chambers' To Be Taught if Fortunate as my first book. The quest I am on is to read at least 4 books. The challenges are: 1: read a space opera novella (which is what I'm reading now) 2A: read two space operas by women 2B: read a space opera by a diverse author and/or with a diverse main character 3: read a space opera from before you were born 4: read a space opera with 500 pages or more. There are unlocks for each challenge, and the path you follow is decided by whether you pick 2A or 2B. Look up SFF180's YouTube channel for more information, and search for "SSF180 presenters Space Opera September 2019" on goodreads to find the group. Among other things, you will find a huge list of women and non-binary space opera authors there. #spaceoperaseptember2019 #sff180 #readathon #readingchallenge #soseptember2019 #sos2019 #tobetaughtiffortunate #beckychambers #scifi #sciencefiction #spaceopera #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #currentlyreading
(I'll do this one in Norwegian). Leste nylig Linnéa Myhres nyeste bok, Meg meg meg. Likte den! Synes @linniiie får til den skildringen av... Hva skal jeg si... unnvikende retningsløshet og angst veldig bra. Protagonisten er med den eldre kjæresten sin til LA mens han jobber, uten å egentlig ha noe spesielt å ta seg til. Så hun klamrer seg fast til det samme ankeret hun klamret seg fast i da hun var yngre, nemlig Britney Spears. Anbefales videre! #megmegmeg #linnéamyhre #linneamyhre #book #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #ebok #ebook #bookporn #bookshelf #kindle #ereader #bookstagrammers #reading #bookreview #britneyspears
The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker is one of those books that has kept popping up everywhere for years. Last time that happened was when I watched the movie Unsane. And now I've finally read it (it's been in my library for years). I thought it was quite interesting, there are a lot of harrowing statistics and anecdotes. I'm still not sure if I'm able to separate genuine fear, which according to de Becker is a good thing, from general worry and anxiety, which is not very helpful. But still! I'd recommend this one, as have many, many people before me. #thegiftoffear #gavindebecker #ebook #book #books #classic #nonfiction #sakprosa #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #lesetips #bokorm #bookworm #lesehest #welovebooks
I recently read "Bad Blood" by John Carreyrou. The story of Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes is so weird - and it's shocking that something like this could and did happen. If you're not familiar with this case, I'd recommend the HBO documentary "The inventor", as well as this book. Holmes will be on trial in 2020. #badblood #theranos #elizabethholmes #johncarreyrou #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #ebook #bookporn #bookshelf #newbook #bookhaul #documentsary #nonfiction #sakprosa
Very happy to have gotten my hands on 'Plantelykke' by Anders Røyneberg, aka @arcticgardener. 🌱 It's a beautiful book, full of helpful advice for beginners and experienced plant lovers alike. It was a gift from @kavehrashidi and @ainahaugr, and it's signed (with an awkward inside joke). Thank you! ❤ The plants featured in this picture, not including the ones on the actual cover: Begonia Maculata, Fittonia Verschaffeltii, String of Hearts, String of Pearls, Peperomia Prostrata, Begonia Rex, Alocasia Polly, Kalanchoe Thyrsiflora, Monstera Adansonii #plantelykke #andersrøyneberg #arcticgardener #sakprosa #nonfiction #coffeetable #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #bookish #bookstagram #bookporn #plantporn
[Leseeksemplar fra forlaget // ARC from the publisher] When I finished reading the first half of of the story about Vei earlier this year, I was sad to discover that the last half wasn't out yet. So imagine my excitement when the publisher sent it to me without me knowing not too long ago. I'm not sure if this story exists in English yet, but it should. Vei by the Swedish authors Sara B. Elfgren and Karl Johnsson consists of 11 chapters split into two books. The story follows the young woman Vei in a world based on norse mythology, where her destiny is not for her to decide. I must say I liked the first half better than the second one, but I happily recommend it! Beautiful artwork, I remember a couple of pages with a lot of red and tangled hair in particular. 🥰 #vei #sarabelfgren #karljohnsson #graphicnovel #comicbook #newbook #bookhaul #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #teaporn #bookporn #egmont
Emily Eternal by M.G. Wheaton has been showing up in recommendations all over the place recently, and when I found it on the recommended shelf at @outlandkirkegata, I went for it. About the book: Emily is an artificial consciousness, designed in a lab to help humans process trauma, which is particularly helpful when the sun begins to die 5 billion years before scientists agreed it was supposed to. So, her beloved human race is screwed, and so is Emily. That is, until she finds a potential answer buried deep in the human genome. But before her solution can be tested, her lab is brutally attacked, and Emily is forced to go on the run with two human companions - college student Jason and small-town Sheriff, Mayra. As the sun's death draws near, Emily and her friends must race against time to save humanity. But before long it becomes clear that it's not only the species at stake, but also that which makes us most human. #emilyeternal #mgwheaton #book #books #newbook #bookhaul #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #scifi #sciencefiction #bookstagrammers #bookporn #coffeeporn #plantporn
I first saw Elisabeth (@elbakken) recommend Planetfall by Emma Newman earlier this year, and since then it has been making the rounds on Norwegian bookish social media. Obviously couldn't let that one pass me by, I trust her taste! About Planetfall: Renata Ghali believed in Lee Suh-Mi’s vision of a world far beyond Earth, calling to humanity. A planet promising to reveal the truth about our place in the cosmos, untainted by overpopulation, pollution, and war. Ren believed in that vision enough to give up everything to follow Suh-Mi into the unknown. More than twenty-two years have passed since Ren and the rest of the faithful braved the starry abyss and established a colony at the base of an enigmatic alien structure where Suh-Mi has since resided, alone. All that time, Ren has worked hard as the colony's 3-D printer engineer, creating the tools necessary for human survival in an alien environment, and harboring a devastating secret. Ren continues to perpetuate the lie forming the foundation of the colony for the good of her fellow colonists, despite the personal cost. Then a stranger appears, far too young to have been part of the first planetfall, a man who bears a remarkable resemblance to Suh-Mi. The truth Ren has concealed since planetfall can no longer be hidden. And its revelation might tear the colony apart… #planetfall #emmanewman #sciencefiction #scifi #gollancz #book #books #newbook #bookhaul #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #bookstagrammers #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #plants #bookporn #plantporn #begoniamaculata
Hunger (Sult) by Knut Hamsun is one of my favourite books. Obviously had to read this new graphic novel adaptation by Martin Ernstsen. I'd happily recommend it, I find the text and illustrations perfectly compliment each other. Ernstsen captured the protagonist's inner turmoil very well! #knuthamsun #sult #hunger #martinernstsen #book #classic #klassiker #bok #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #graphicnovel #tegneserie #bookporn
One of my favourite hobbies, aside from reading, is embroidery. So obviously, when I came across "Threads of Life" by Clare Hunter, which claims to offer "A history of the world through the eye of a needle", I had to get it. #threadsoflife #clarehunter #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #bokorm #bookworm #nonfiction #history #historybook #embroidery #crafts
