Unless you’re an avid reader, I don’t think you truly understand the highly specific sense of stomach-churning anxiety you get as you look at how few pages are left in a book, or how far down the screen the scrollbar is, and realize that there’s no possible way that the story can have a satisfactory ending in the time remaining.
I think the only thing comparable in visual media is a series finale, when there’s no hope of picking up a cliffhanger at the beginning of the next season. But if a TV show is doing a good enough job of capturing my attention, I’m not usually glancing at the clock to see how much time is left. When you have to keep flipping pages or scrolling down, you can’t help but be aware of how close the end is.
By now, it is probably very late at night, and you have stayed up to read this book when you should have gone to sleep. If this is the case, then I commend you for falling into my trap. It is a writer’s greatest pleasure to hear that someone was kept up until the unholy hours of the morning reading one of his books. It goes back to authors being terrible people who delight in the suffering of others. Plus, we get a kickback from the caffeine industry…Brandon Sanderson - Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians (via bookporn)
I did it. I found the ultimate tumblr bookstore.
why was green eggs and ham banned??
THAT is a really good question
It was banned in China between 1965 and 1991 for “portrayal of early Marxism”, and in California for “homosexual seduction”. Apparently they found lines like “would you, could you, on a boat” and “would you, could you, with a goat” offensive.
