Books and Books

Now playing: Jack Johnson - Good People

I'm reading a book.

Don't blame me, its just something I do nowadays. Anyway, its a pretty good book, fun to read, etc. Its entertaining. I've never thought about it before, but books are just like movies. You have books, and you have books. You get your run-of-the-mill, book that tells a story, which can be entertaining, make you laugh, make you sad maybe, and probably have one or two little lessons to be learnt at the end of it. And then you have other books, where the actual story is secondary to the the book's very presence. There are movies like that too. People will disagree about what movies they may be, but I'd volunteer names like The Shawshank Redemption, Crash, American Beauty (Babel tried, but didn't do it for me). These movies/books just have their own power, and are in a completely different class. Sometimes I'm a little anal about this kind of thing, but I guess that there are different books to fulfill different desires, and its okay to enjoy both the profound type which leaves a lasting effect, and the other kind which brightens your day a little.

    ill keep it in mind. Will it make me want to commit suicide? Would it make a good gift for my enemies, I mean friends?

    Crash is indeed one of the best movies I ever seen and I bet the book it self is a great read!
