Liberal Arts: Worth Every Penny

Liberal Arts:  Worth Every Penny

If you are a book nerd, this is a great place to fall in love with another book nerd.  http://acornbookshop.com/Acorn_LibartsMovie.html

Below is my favorite movie dialogue from “Liberal Arts”  I thought that creators of this movie examined inside my head.  This movie is full of stuff that I love about life such as coffee, books, travel, and music.

Ana: I love books. I do, in like, the dorkiest way possible.

Jesse Fisher: Oh, me too. It’s a problem.

Ana: Like, I love trees cause they give us books.

Jesse Fisher: super cool of the trees to do that, Right?

Ana: I’m actually… this is weird. I’m actually trying to read less.

Jesse Fisher: Why?

Ana: I felt like I wasn’t watching enough television. No, l just started to feel like reading about life was taking time away from actually living life, so I’m trying to, like, accept invitations to things, say “hi” to the world a little more.

Jesse Fisher: That sounds scary. It’s going well?

Ana: It’s… okay. I keep thinking I’d be so much happier in bed with a book, and that makes me feel not super cool. I still read tons. I just feel like I’m more aware of a book’s limitations. Does that make sense?

Jesse Fisher: Yeah, totally.  

P.S.  This is me as well, especially #11.   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/beth-bartlett/youre-a-book-nerd-if_b_5374605.html

Tokyo Bandwagon: this book saved my life

Tokyo Bandwagon:  this book saved my life

That was only one book I was able to read and comprehend.  It was the only book that woke up my brain and all my senses.  I was able to cry and I felt the pain for the first time since he passed.

There are 2 things I can’t live without, good food and good books.  Sometime in 2007, I was struggling hard.  I could not eat and could not read.  I tried and tried to open many books and read but my brain was not processing any letters, words, and sentences.  But finally I found one that I could read and feel and it is called “Tokyo Bandwagon” written by Yukiya Shoji, Japanese author.  I still haven’t figured out why this book was the only one I could read but it really does not matter.  The important thing is that this book made me realize that I was alive.  I just heard news about the brand new book (8th book of ongoing series) will be published this coming April and my heart jumped for joy.  Only 3 more months to go.

I am forever thankful.  This book saved my life.
