Explaining E-Readers to Charles Dickens

A few bookish surprises for this beautiful Saturday morning.

Rebecca Greenfield’s The Atlantic piece, “Designing a 19th-Century Kindle: An E-Reader for Dickens,” is a must-see.  Clever.

Check out Milan-based street artist Guildor’s floating word art.  Ahhh.  Love it.

Are you sleepy?  Here’s a dream come true…a book you can sleep in.  Zzzz…

Peruse favorite final lines from 20 books.  I think my favorite is from A Tale of Two Cities.

Do you have anything to share?  Do tell.

      Fascinating! I’m afraid I’ve been using some of those words incorrectly…oh my! Thanks for that!

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
