“I still love books. Nothing a computer can do can compare to a book. You can’t really put a book on the Internet. Three companies have offered to put books by me on the Net, and I said, ‘If you can make something that has a nice jacket, nice paper with that nice smell, then we’ll talk.’ All the computer can give you is a manuscript. People don’t want to read manuscripts. They want to read books. Books smell good. They look good. You can press it to your bosom. You can carry it in your pocket.”—Ray Bradbury (via fivetwofivetwo)
I totally forgot that Frankenstein’s monster learned how to smoke in „Bride of Frankenstein“. Well, I wish I could quit! ;-)
Easter is ahead and all I do care about are the 4 days off. Raised as a Catholic this used to be a very important time for me and my family. But nowadays it is not special to me anymore. The weather is awful. So I decided to spend most of the time at home, preferably in my bed.
I’ve done a lot of reading lately (Ray Bradbury, Tom Rob Smith, Neil Gaiman, David Peace) and I plan to continue with it. I haven’t finished reading “House Of Leaves” (Mark Z. Danielewski) yet, although I started with it months ago. But I always get distracted by other things: other books, graphic novels, games, movies, life itself… Did you experience that: you stopped reading a certain book and after a while you start to forget what it was all about? So, I think I should hurry! I hope I have it finished after Easter.
