It's a lot more intimate and I like the feeling of having another book to add to my little library b/c my Taurus brain makes me super materialistic.  

That's exactly how I feel about albums ahdn_george_06

But yeah, paper books for me. I was raised on library books because I live in a small house with limited space, so now that the plague has struck I'm beginning to realize how few books I actually own. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

This explains a lot. I've always been a bit of a hoarder and attach meaning to inanimate objects. Now I can explain to my partner that it's not my fault, it's the stars!

I'm kind of the opposite: I own a ton of books that I literally haven't even touched since I bought them (the #1 gift that my friends and family give me are Barnes & Noble gift cards so no, I'm not swimming in money to buy all these books it's just I got those gift cards that I can't spend anywhere else, but now I guess I can use them to buy records b/c B&N sells vinyl for some reason) but I'm always complaining of never having anything to read b/c I'm very picky when it comes to what I feel like reading at what time.

It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.

Got a copy of Trouble Boys : The True Story of The Replacements by Bob Mehr today and I'm already about 80 pages in. Would definitely recommend to any fans of the band, or anyone who appreciates good music journalism. Some of the details of the band members' childhoods are pretty tough to read about, though, so bear that in mind if you're someone who doesn't deal well with that sort of thing. 

I've made some good progress on my excessively booklist since the start of lockdown - I've read Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine, Chomsky/Herman's Manufacturing Consent and Slavoj Žizek's Violence cover to cover, and I've gotten most of the way through a few others, including Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States and David Harvey's A Brief History of Neoliberalism. I'm kind of burned out on the politics lit, so it's nice to dig into something a bit more trivial.

There is no final victory, as there is no final defeat. There is just the same battle to be fought, over and over again. So toughen up, bloody toughen up.” - Tony Benn
