I read in an interview with Ralph Steadman (who is my fave by the way,) that he did not see much money from the books he did with HST, but that when they signed up to do Curse of Lono, they did the royalties for it 50/50, and that Hunter never stopped giving Ralph grief about it! ha!

Then get a kindle. Get a Paperwhite or just the cheapest fucking Kindle you can find. I use my Paperwhite still because my iPad (they just came out with the fourth gen, btw.) is a little heavy for extended reading, and a little clunky besides. I still think it has the best resolution... its "night" mode kicks the Kindle Fire's white on black, and there is a much wider range of brightness levels.
But the Paperwhite almost feels like a book sometimes, and it's small and slow and shitty so you don't worry much about breaking it.

I miss books though honestly. I just found a gem at a yard sale: a first edition hardcover John Irving.... But I know I'll never read the thing. Too damn impractical.

the world will now end.

Read the damn thing in the shitter! or in bed fr a half hour before you sleep each night.

I have one book, usually a large reference text, in the bathroom to read while shitting. I am almost finished with this one right now
 


I love etymology. Since I am fluent in Spanish and English, it allows for a wide swatch of word recognition

By my bed I have the Promethea comics I posted before. In my messenger bag I carry to work I have the art essay book I also posted earlier. I doubt you can find any of the three for reading on a Kindle, but you never know...

Just like there are MILLIONS of vinyl recordings worldwide that will never be digitized or available on itunes, there are hundreds of years worth of books that will never be available on a kindle or ipad device.

I just read Norwegian Wood by Murakami in two days, for the most part I would say it was pretty good, but with quite a few waffles - a bit too oversentimental at times and it really drags on in parts. That said, certain things about it resonated with me on a deeply personal level, and I related to a lot of the main character's feelings and experiences. Can't help feeling that something is missing though, and that it's all a bit aimless - perhaps the point? Weirdly conflicted about it. Anyone got any experience with his other works?

Three Stigmata by PKD was excellent, tho!

I started reading Murakami back in the mid 90's when a friend told me I had to read A Wild Sheep Chase. (awesome) Then I read Dance Dance Dance (awesome as well) and then I read The Wind Up Bird Chronicles (maybe my fave) and it was awesome. Kafka on the Shore followed, which I liked very very much. I have yet to read one of his books that did not warp my mind in some excellent way.

I have not read Norwegian wood, it is from the mid-late 80's right? I heard it was the one that caught everyone's attention, but maybe he was not quite "there" yet?

It was his first novel and certainly his straightest. Especially when you compare it to books like Wind-up bird chronicles. I really liked it.

To Gravityslips-if you liked Norwegian...check out 'Sanshiro' by Natsume Soseki. Murakami was massively influenced by him and this book especially. You'll see many similarities to Norwegian Wood certainly.

just as there are some really fantastic PRINT editions of books that are widely available in digital format. I started collecting Heritage editions of some of the classics. The Crime and Punishment edition from the 60's with woodcut illustrations is a particularly nice example, as are a couple of others, notably Arabian Knights 2 volume set( pretty erotic pix and text)

Another really wonderful edition is the Keith Harrison illustrated edition of Hudson's Green Mansions, the art is a really necessary addition to the text on that one, and let's also not forget the Tenniel illustrated Alice books...........

Brilliant book and I'd recommend this to anybody with a slight interest in politics or social history. It's also depressing as hell when you realise not much is going to change.

I read that and agreed with most of it but I've since been put off after seeing its author on TV a few times. He just comes across as really irritating. It doesn't help that he looks about 12.

Finished the David Hickey art essay book. Now onto this. One chapter in and I am excited.

 


One of my favorite writers, Robert Anton Wilson, has talked extensively about Buckminster Fuller and his ideas and now that I work at a Library, I can check out Fuller's books.

Elmore Leonard - Swag

After the massive mindfuckery of Blood Meridian this is exactly what I needed. If Cormac McCarthy takes two pages to describe a tree, Elmore Leonard rarely takes more than a sentence to describe anything. It's like listening to Blitzkrieg Bop straight after listening to Bach, or something.
