Last I heard, books didn’t have a ratings system. Last I heard, despite the movie ratings system, kids got their hands on R-rated movies anyway. Last I heard, Wendy Day hadn’t laughed once since the late ’80’s. (via The Millions)
At MetaxuCafe, Damon Garr wants to know how much you read. If I had to peg down a number, I spend perhaps at least three to four hours a day reading something, much of that during my commute time. I generally try to get in a lengthy reading session on the weekend. There’s often nothing more satisfying than five or six uninterrupted hours immersed in a book. I read constantly on planes, which is why I enjoy traveling. (I was able to finish two and a half books on my last flight.) I still manage to have some semblance of a life, despite all this. And of course, like any addict, I constantly crave more, which, now that I think about it, probably makes me more obsessive about books than I realized.
Robert Redford has demanded an apology for Iraq. Yeah, Redford, that’ll show ’em. I hereby demand an apology from Redford for all the meetings he’s shown up hours late for and all the people he’s expected to deify him over the years.
