Journal Entry 1 by winglunaciawing from Grünerløkka bydel, Oslo fylke Norway on Sunday, December 13, 2020
Frank Bascombe, in the aftermath of his divorce and the ruin of his career, has entered an 'Existence Period' - selling real estate in New Jersey and mastering the high-wire act of normalcy. But, over one Fourth of July weekend, Frank is called into sudden, bewildering engagement with life. "Independence Day" is a moving, peerlessly funny odyssey through America and through the layered consciousness of one of its most compelling literary incarnations, conducted by a novelist of extraordinary empathy and perception.

Released 4 mos ago (6/10/2021 UTC) at Lesekiosk 1 in Frogner bydel, Oslo fylke Norway


"Lesekiosk - ta en bok, gi en bok" means "Reading booth - take a book, give a book". The so called "lesekiosks" have popped up all over Norway, but this one at Solli plass in the centre of Oslo was the first one.

I went here to release a pile of books after today's meetup.
