Let’s Go Reading: Bukumu Duniamu (Your Book, Your World)

Last December I posted about my ‘little project’ of creating free downloadable printables for motivating people to read more. I’m so happy that some people really print them and use them :) Some tagged me on the photos.

In case you want to download them, the links are on the post.

So yes, as I have always believed, that a good action will attract other good ones :)

One day in January, a girl from President University contacted me. She told me that she and her friends are making a campaign to gain awareness in reading books titled ‘Bukumu Duniamu’ (Your Book Your World), Gerakan 1000 Buku (1000 Books Movement). They have been collecting book donation (so glad that they give my printed bookmarks for those who donate books) since January 18 and they will make a little library in Desa Labansari, Cikarang Timur, West Java. They will also have some events including teaching, sharing session, coloring competition for children, and other activities this February.

Here is the poster.

I told them that I’d love to volunteer but I can’t make it to Bekasi those dates, so instead, I’m spreading the words here to you :) If you want to participate, you can:
Be a volunteer for 9, 11, 15, 18 of February 2016
Book donation
Money donation through kitabisa.com/tamanbacalabansari (you can read their story in Bahasa there)

Please contact them for more information:

Let’s spread the good actions! Let’s spread the words and the spirit!
Let’s go reading! :)

On Being Strong

“The strong is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong is the one who controls himself while in anger.”

– Hadith Sahih Al-Bukhari

I could see for miles, miles, miles

“Someway, baby, it’s part of me, apart from me”
You’re laying waste to Halloween
You fucked it, friend, it’s on its head, it struck the street
You’re in Milwaukee, off your feet

And at once I knew I was not magnificent
Strayed above the highway aisle
(Jagged vacance, thick with ice)
I could see for miles, miles, miles

3rd and Lake, it burnt away, the hallway
Was where we learned to celebrate
Automatic bought the years you’d talk for me
That night you played me ‘Lip Parade’
Not the needle, nor the thread, the lost decree
Saying nothing, that’s enough for me

And at once I knew I was not magnificent
Hulled far from the highway aisle
(Jagged vacance, thick with ice)
I could see for miles, miles, miles

Christmas night, it clutched the light, the hallow bright
Above my brother, I and tangled spines
We smoked the screen to make it what it was to be
Now to know it in my memory

And at once I knew I was not magnificent
High above the highway aisle
(Jagged vacance, thick with ice)
I could see for miles, miles, miles

Bon Iver – Holocene

One or two of the most beautiful things that I think I’ll miss. Or, maybe already.
