"To privilege the book as reading, though—to forget that it is a technology—is analogous to forgetting one has a body"

The Internet Killed Books to Save Reading  (via socio-logic)

I’ve had this quote saved in my drafts, trying to figure out why I liked it so much and I think it’s finally kissed me just so.

It is about the processes, yes, but also the way the mind functions. What we think and how we think vs. what is the tangible thing that represents those thoughts. But that is not and can not be everything. The body is not the mind at work. A physical book is not the act of reading.

I loathed the idea of a kindle until I got one a couple of years ago and then it made so much sense. My apartment was (and still is) filled with books. I buy them regularly, making trips to my usual haunts in the city for stories both new and old. But now, I read even MORE. I have the kindle app on my phone and on my laptop too. My mind is free to read always and whenever. That is powerful. It will always be the words that matter not the medium in which they are delivered.

Consider the power of the tumblr dashboard. If you follow the right people, you will be surrounded by beauty and passion and humor and light. And also, words that will change your life. Strangers can share with you worlds you’d never known. A book is a book but a word is not just a word. It never can be and never will.

I suspect the Captain has been watching an inordinate amount of reality TV bc every time I tell him about a problem on the bridge he calls it drama. I mean, that’s fine I guess, but it’s a technical issue with the navigation electronics. There’s no drama about it: that shit is broken.
