Writing in Booksbook writing
Are you all right writing a book? Two-reader discussion
In your case, however, you will be arguing the holy invulnerability of a book as a sublime vessel of knowledge, reality and glory, that the letter in them is to corrupt them, to degrade them, to corrupt their fine faces, in a word, a sacrilege. Here is what you are saying. Yet, here's where your point will flatten: you want to appreciate your textbooks and show how cremy whites levels of opportunity to marshoot the words of Genius (and only geniuses) - and eating them, too (okay, maybe not eating, but digesting, struggling with, understanding, and remembering).
and a hooker on the nightstand. I' ll go ahead and give you that there can be a place in every bookstore for a particularly holy ribbon, one that merits it to go untagged, untagged, undog-earred, and unstarred-a first issue, perhaps an inheritance or a valued giwe.
But most of the works, perhaps all of them, are awaiting the reader's margins, and these signs themselves are a sacrosanct sign of discursive communication between the readers and what they do. I don't hold a book holy. I only have those I want to go back to reading.
Anything else is given, dumped or abandoned on Melissa's desktop, along with a scary post-it memo ("thought you could really take this story from a killer stalker"). When I read these favourite reading materials again, the only thing that is sure to spoil my enjoyment is the encounter with my own silly margin. I also welcome your custom of giving away old literature, because I myself am a bookseller.
But I cannot part with them, because what if one of these days I want to reread them.... or refer to the memos I have included in them? The frustration of remembering (or thinking you remember) a line or topic or an incident from a textbook, but you can't find it in this textbook because you haven't written it down, however inconspicuous.
Their notepads are your literature table of expansion, and as such they are invaluable, like the padded galley doorpost of your parental home. How to: Copy your favourite quotes by heart into your diary. Keep your ledgers unspoiled, unpolluted, like a set of unspoiled swimming pool areas that you can immerse yourself in as you grow older.
Instead, I land with widely dispersed post-it memos, dollar store notepads, deserted moleskine memos and accidental data on my computer with sorry, solitary, unmoored expressions and rows like, "stores exactly what they did up to the last subparagraph = we Colludierten, laughed (Delayed Realization), which is why it hurt so much.
" My own I could ask without knowing what this notice is about. I would have to have a bookcase next to my bookcase - and a much better storage system - if I were to take my memos in a place other than the lecture itself. You for or against bookmaking?
