I’ve been subjected to some pretty abysmal post-modern poetry (despite recently finishing at Poetry module at uni), I never really managed to connect with some poems on a level I would have liked. Books tend to better at – to use the cliche term – “open my eyes and soul” than poetry.
But this? It takes the biscuit, the whole goddamn cake and the entire bakery. Absolute genius and a brilliant message.
Hope you’re all having a great week! I notice that I haven’t posted a review of a book in a while and so I present to you my latest review of the wonderfully funny ‘Rivers of London’ by Ben Aaronovitch.

“It would be nice sitting next to you at the pictures, no matter what may be on the screen. It would be grand to be having each other’s support and sympathy. It would be wonderful to be together, really together be in the flesh, not just to know that a letter is all we can send.”

No longer a warehouse for barely touched tomes, the Chattanooga Public Library has embraced 3-D printers, laser cutters, sewing machines, and, above all, interaction. Forget what you know about the library of the 20th century. You know, those dark places with clunky microform machines fossilizing in the basement and with rows of encyclopedias standing, perfectly alphabetized, in denial of their obsolescence. Forget all of that: The library as a warehouse of information is an outdated concept. The library of the 21st century is a community workshop, a hub filled with the tools of the knowledge economy.
