Happy Palm Sunday to all Orthodox Christians and Happy Easter Sunday to all Christians celebrating today.
This is my third lockdown week in Romania and I had to come up with entertainment plans. Especially since the police car ubiquitously screaming our national anthem into its loudspeakers as well as safety instructions is pretty depressing.
Let’s be clear: we’re in lockdown yet so many people are flouting these rules so this is not going to end early. What’s next? A Nobel-winning economist encouraged people to read more fiction. Yes!!! Lay off those randomized controlled trials assessing hydroxychloroquine or remdesivir, and other hyped anti-Covid19 medication. Remember, science needs time and evidence. A lot of time!
What should you do? Think of all those books you’ve bought years ago staring aimlessly from the shelves. I am happy to start on my fourth fiction book. For some reason, I am stuck with French literature. What’s your reading list?
