“When anybody asks, 'What are you writing about now?' if I try to reply, the book-in-the-works sounds so idiotic to me that I think, 'Why am I trying to write that puerile junk?' So now I give up; if I could talk about it, I wouldn't have to write it."
- Madeleine L'Engle, A Circle of Quiet


Reading Is Fun!

Thursday, February 23, 2006

It's 5 am and since my brain flat-out refuses to allow me any more sleep tonight, my day has now begun. I'm stubborn, though. I refuse to be productive before 6 am, so instead I found a completely useless way to waste my time – well, unless you consider freaking out friends, relatives, co-workers and strangers a good use of your time.

Introducing, FlapArt. No, I didn't create it. I'm not that creative or that fast. I just found it and think it's hilarious. Imagine sitting in the lunch room at work reading "Fast Track to Prison - Exploring the Many Benefits of Life Behind Bars"; or better yet, "How to Steal From Your Employer and Get Away With It". Sitting on a park bench reading "How to Murder a Complete Stranger and Get Away With It" while casting suspicious looks over the top of your book at passers-by would be sure to help them get a better workout by quickening their pace a bit.

Personally, I think I'll bring my copy of "Laser Eye Surgery at Home" to our next family gathering. They all think we're crazy do-it-yourselfers anyway. I might as well complete the illusion. The Geek? I think he'd want this one.

So, how about you? Which of these books is next on your "reading" list?
