I’m trying to advance my intellectual level by constantly reading books. But I have no clue whether the books I am choosing are the right ones to do that because - as with movies and comics - my focus seems to be entertainment. I recently joined an online book club and recognised that all the books those guys were reading and disscussing bored the heck out of me! I am frankly unable to read any books that are not thrilling me after 10 pages the latest! I’m not saying the books I like would be bad in any way, currently I’m reading King, Pratchett, Gaiman (loving his Graveyard Book!), they are just not high-intellectual or sincere. But why not - after all reading is supposed to be fun and not perpetual torment that needs special motivation!
I have also retrieved my lost interest in dinosaurs (Jurassic Park had ruined it for me back then). But that does not effect reading scientific books or watching sincere documentaries. ;-)
Look, there’s a dino on my pen! :-D
beef at the workplace, “Are you looking at me?”
I’m considering to buy a dinosaur-skeleton assembly set. I think it’d look great hanging off my ceiling, glowing in the dark.
