A Book Is Something To Take To Bed With You

A book is something to take to bed with you...

The LRC [Learning Resource Centre] is an educational disaster. Here, where books are merely "learning resources", reading is about functional literacy instead of pleasure. A paperclip is a learning resource. Google Earth is a learning resource. But a book is "the distilled essence of a human soul". A book is something you take to bed with you. It is not a learning resource any more than a kiss is a coordinated interpersonal labial spasm... FRANK COTTRELL BOYCE
