I’ve only ever thrown a book across the room in anger once.  It was an awful ending.  I hope to one day throw another one.

That’s what I love about reading – it plays my emotions to perfect pitch.  Whether I hated it, loved it, wanted to marry it or destroy it with only my thoughts, I have always loved reading the written word.  I have always loved books.

This is my library where my introverted self can spew out thoughts and feelings about the books that have come and gone in my life.  It is the room in which I can wax poetic about the quantum experience of reading and where the quantum activist in me can get my geek on.

  8. Throwing books across a room… a costly problem with Kindles and other e-readers.

  9. Thanks for the follow! I really appreciate it! Nice blog you’ve got here too! 🙂

  10. Do you mind if I ask what book made you so mad?
    I’ve never actually thrown a book against a wall, but there was one time when I totally would have if the book had belonged to me, so I can relate!

    • It was Hannibal by Thomas Harris. I really enjoyed Clarice in Silence of the Lambs. Thomas Harris undid all of that at the end of Hannibal. I just didn’t buy what happened to Clarice and felt so ripped off. I swore and chucked that book against a wall vowing to never read another one of his books again. Seems dramatic I know but I was young. 🙂

      • This would be a fun debate at some point, do you have a post about it? I loved Silence of The Lambs, but Hannibal just delved deeper into that “tension” between he and Clarice in the earlier story.

        I know Demme and Jodie Foster were dismayed at the direction the film took and backed out. I did not buy into Moore as Starling. But the book was interesting…

        Ah well, happy to have found you. Look forward to following and chatting more. -Christy

        • I would love to except that I forgot most of what the story is about. I read it well over 10 years ago now and I disliked the ending so much I may have blocked it out. 😉 A good experiment would be to re-read both of them over again and see if I think the same thing now.

          • Life is too short to reread books you hated the first time. I’m sure we’ll find something in the future to discuss!

            “Hannibal Rising” was actually pretty fun for a prequel though. I don’t remember the book well enough to quote it, though I enjoyed it. The movie had some vivid scenes.

  23. Have you come across your next book to throw? Because I’d be happy to give you a title or two. I’m staunchly anti-book abuse but sometimes it’s the only acceptable form of expression.

  24. The power of the written word, it’s good to see its alive and well. I agree, books are suppose to elicit some kind of emotion from its readers. Your About Page clearly and with good humor shows just that. So creative.
