Book Tipp:
“The Book of Idle Pleasures”
by Dan Kieran & Tom Hodgkinson

At its best, the book has a delightful tone of foppish grandeur, achieving without much fuss a kind of phenomenological intensity in entries such as “Walking Back Home Drunk” or “Poking the Fire”. Remember, too, that most things are improved with “a cup of smouldering tea”, on which note I must leave you, as the kettle has just boiled.
Review: The Guardian

A wonderful book that shows you all the small and (mostly) free things in life, which help you to slow down and appreciate life. You can’t buy happiness…
