I've really come to appreciate the hard work of individuals that make the #fediverse work by hosting and managing instances. As a big reader I really like #Bookwyrm so I can log all my books and reviews.
Administrator of Rambling Readers. I'm a university researcher interested in transport geography, GIS and maps. In my spare time I love rambling in the coast and countryside around my home in Devon. Plus reading of course!

Perusing Rambling Readers is getting expensive. This is the second book I've bought this week after seeing reviews on Rambling Readers.
I recently read "Four Thousand Weeks" and was surprised that, although many of Burkeman's conclusions aligned with Stoic teaching, I remember no explicit mention of Stoicism in the text. It will be interesting to read this book and then go back and read "Four Thousand Weeks" again and see what changed in the nine years in-between.
