shaffer Today I finished reading this book and now I am still living in it… It was a really good book with a wonderful and touching story written in a letter-style. I was excited to find out how it is going to end and now I am sad the book is done. After this kind of books it’s hard to find the next book to read that will be as good.

I was reading reviews on Goodreads and was surprised to see that some people didn’t like this book. They hated it, in fact. I wanted to leave a comment – “how can you judge a book by reading just a few pages??”…

What do you do when you don’t have any music stored on your computer? Recently I bought a new computer and most of the time I use it instead of my laptop which is working perfectly fine. I know now why I didn’t transfer any music from one HP to another. I wanted to be free from the “static music”, the music that already known by me, the music that I love. I find it that if you listen to the same set of songs all over again eventually you will get tired of it. Have  you ever noticed how fast the favourite song of yours become “oh crap, this one again”-song just because the radio stations are playing it too often?

I wrote about Songza, but since it’s only for iPad, iPhone etc, I re-discovered 8tracks. Yes, it is mostly indie music, and sometimes it is too sad and even depressing, but you can find at least a few mixes there that you will love. You can even make your own mix using Soundcloud or the mp3 files from your computer. You can share your mix with others or you can make for your ears only. Your choice.

Personally, I really like the mixes with piano music (what a surprise!) but especially with korean music. There is a lot of mixes like that on 8tracks. A couple of mixes related to my fav Sherlock (apparently, there is a fandom about this cool BBC show).

Just give it a try if you haven’t yet. Hope you enjoy it.

  I discovered Songza. Do you know what am I talking about? It’s another way to listen to music. Sure, there are many applications, programs, radio stations but this one allows you to choose YOUR music. The kind of music that suits YOU. That will be a reflection of YOUR mood. That will support YOUR activity.

Much recommended for music lovers.
