Make Books Cool Again

Comment: Kim sent me this quote and I thought it too good not to post. 

I absolutely agree with John Waters.  But I would add a proviso though :)

If you go home and they have self-help books or books on how to make more money on less time then run the f*ck in the opposite direction.

The same is true if they have all kinds of religious books to prove that their soul is on a predetermined elevator to heaven.

In the latter case you should have known better not to stick around right after their ass started talking about having a personal relationship with the dude upstairs; so f*ck the missionary position and roll out immediately.

It matters that the one you with can read and it matters even more that they read meaningful sh*t.

Of course how will you know if they read or what they reading if they download books onto a Kindle or some other reader.

I think John Waters was talking about real books - so yeah, stick around for the nasty only if they have real (and meaningful) books.

Hope you smiling Kim.

Hey there Kim.

I am glad to know you smiling :)

Did I tell you I walked around Powells the other day just to feel again what a real bookstore should be like?

Will holla your way.
