Finally, books made to be judged by their covers. Before I had a life or a career, I loved reading. There was nothing I liked better than curling up with a great book. Now, I just don’t know how people find the time. I read for maybe 45 minutes before I go to sleep, but half of that time is spent waking up with my Kindle smashing into my face as I struggle to keep awake. I wish I had more time to read, but it’s just not a luxury I have at this point.
The new Tumblr blog Better Book Titles helps me keep up to date with modern literature by providing everything I need to know about the book right in the newly revised title. I can fully attest to the Infinite Jest cover. I bought it about a month ago, I’ve read it for a week and a half total, an hour or so a night, and I’m about 4% in. This is going to be one long haul unless my next few weekends are reserved for David Foster Wallace and his love of footnotes.
