We have got some 2019 statistics of he first full year of operation of Central Library Oodi: A total of 3.1 million visits were made to Oodi and the total number of visits to all libraries in Helsinki reached a whopping 9 million. The number of audiobook downloads increased by 84 per cent.
Audiobooks are a growing trend and there are many companies who offer paid audiobook services. Recently I have listened to several audiobooks and one of the most interesting was The Little Book of Ikigai. The Essential Japanese Way to Finding Your Purpose in Life by Japanese Ken Mogi. The book was published in 2017, perhaps you have read it? I’ll leave you a LINK, in case you wish to read more and listen to a podcast.
Pink cherries & Japanese maples fit to the Japanese theme and the Ikebana arrangement
that I photographed last spring in The Winter Garden of Helsinki.
To finish, I’ll pamper you with a fresh fruit and berry salad that is not fattening.
No added sugar & plenty of vitamins. Hope you like it!
