  4. "Voi non lo sapete ma c’è un girone dell’Inferno per quelli che, quando ti vedono con il lettore di e-book, ti dicono: “Ah però la carta, i libri di carta, l’odore dei libri di carta, i piedi dei libri di carta, le mutande dei libri di carta, vuoi mettere? Io non riuscirei mai a usare quel coso, è così poco romantico!”.
    Il girone dell’inferno per costoro è costituito da questi ingredienti:
    - scatoloni
    - libri
    - traslochi
    - eternità q.b.
    Finito un trasloco e sistemati i libri, devono subito ritraslocare.
    Mentre inscatolano libri e caricano e scaricano, c’è un demone che reca in mano un e-reader e che fa finta che pesi tantissimo e dice: “Oh per Satana! in 200 grammi ho tutta la mia libreria! Come farò a trasportare questo oggetto! E’ pesantissimo!”
    E per il finto sforzo farà peti di zolfo che ammorberanno l’aria."
    — Francesco Lanza on fb (via santamag)

Bruno Munari - Speak Italian: The Fine Art of the Gesture
“Speak Italian was first published in 1958 by artist, photographer and sculptor Bruno Munari. The photographs capture something from a time long since past, but the gestures themselves are still as current as can be. The book (a bilingual edition) was reissued a number of years ago by Chronicle Books.”

  12. "Non mi pare che la lucciola si attribuisca maggior importanza per il fatto incontrovertibile d’essere una delle meraviglie più spettacolari di questo circo, e tuttavia è sufficiente supporre in essa una coscienza per capire che ogni volta che le si accende il pancino l’insetto di luce deve sentire come un solletico di privilegio."
    — Rayuela, Cortázar
  13. "If you read one book a week, starting at the age of 5, and live to be 80, you will have read a grand total of 3,900 books, a little over one-tenth of 1 percent of the books currently in print."

    The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop, Lewis Buzbee (via bibliotheque)

    Sometimes when people keep pushing me to read a book I don’t want to I tell them I’ve done the maths for how many books I want to read versus how many I can possibly read in my life and I just don’t have the time for their crappy book. I don’t even have time to have this conversation with you I have a schedule to keep to. Damn it people.

    Einaudi ha pubblicato un altro libro di Thomas Bernhard. Sai benissimo che quegli interminabili monologhi ossessivo-compulsivi, quel pessimismo cosmico e disperazione abissale appena mitigati da un feroce sarcasmo per le cose del mondo non ti faranno certo stare meglio, anzi, molto probabilmente ti faranno stare peggio e se proprio va bene l’effetto si potrà risolvere al massimo in una sorta di vago effetto catartico. Tuttavia compri lo stesso il libro, non solo perché quello scrittore austriaco iperbolico ti affascina con i suoi periodi martellanti che non finiscono mai, con i suoi noti eccessi umorali portati all’estremo fino al limite della parodia e perché, a ben guardare, al fondo di quella disperazione sconvolgente ed eccessiva si scopre una forma di irriducibile e feroce attaccamento alla vita e al genere umano. Ma anche, più banalmente, perché non comprandolo ti sembrerebbe di far torto all’editor della casa editrice che ha avuto l’audacia di realizzare una copertina rosa shocking per uno degli autori più cupi della storia della letteratura europea e che per questo merita senza dubbio un solidale incoraggiamento.
