So, here is an idea.
I have put together a list of 52 books.
Of these 49 I have here, either on my shelf or on my e-reader. The other three I’ll get as soon as possible (one comes out in April, I’ve pre-ordered it already).
So the idea was – I can read (and in a couple of cases, re-read) one per week, and then do a post. The list is pretty eclectic – it features novels and short story collections, a couple of comic books, a lot of non-fiction (science and nature, history, politics & economy).
Some books are well known, a lot of others are not so widely popular.
I thought about doing this as a podcast but came to the conclusion that
a . I hate my voice
b . I don’t like talking to myself
c . writing is faster
Also, yes – d . a blog post is cost-free, while a podcast archiving space costs money.
I would add that at this moment my desire to communicate with the people out here is VERY close to zero, so I am thinking about doing this for my Patrons, but I will also devise a way to post out here too – without short-charging my supporters. I have an idea already.
So, what do you say?

You could prefer the patrons and choose a limited amount of books to post here.
I personally love to search and discover new authors and books, like a hobby, but after dozens and dozens of book I would like to give something back. Clearly I can’t come here and say something random without context like “Have you ever heard of The Quincunx by Charles Palliser or Riddley Walker by Russell Hogan?”.
On the other hand, I’m happy you made good use of Filibus.
