Many people, other than the authors, contribute to the making of a book, from the first person who had the bright idea of alphabetic writing through the inventor of movable type to the lumberjacks who felled the trees that were pulped for its printing. It is not customary to acknowledge the trees themselves, though their commitment is total. ~Forsyth and Rada, Machine Learning
a lover of books, reading, words, stories, and other forms of lit-related geekery. reality sucks, and books always take me to a better place. "I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library." - Jorge Luis Borges...
"Rustic wedding idea: use rope-closured, leather bound journal as guest book." Books are easy to make, and you can get quick tutorials off the internet. I used to make them sometimes for different events.
“There are books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story... don't be like the book-snobs who won't do that. Read sometimes for the words--the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers who won't do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.” ― Stephen King
