I finished reading The Future and Its Enemies this morning. (If I were going to invent something, it would be an exercise bike combined with a laptop computer, so I could exercise and read blogs at the same time. But at least it gives me time to read books.) I'm a "book marker", a person who likes to mark passages to go back to later; my husband is not. Therefore, I was surprised to find that he had marked his book when he read it. It was nice to see what had struck him while he was reading; it was almost like having him here to discuss the book.

The collector in me can't stand the idea of marking books. So I used to handwrite notes on slips of paper and leave them in the book as an index of key pages and passages. Nowadays I type up the best quotes in my diary if I happen to be reading the book near my laptop. But I do most of my reading as I walk to and from work, so I don't do that much anymore. What I would like is a tiny laptop that would enable me to read what's on my computer as I walk using part of one of my glasses lenses as a screen. Why not just take the next step and have the data downloaded directly into my brain? But I am scared of having a hole drilled into my skull.

There was an episode of THE OUTER LIMITS (the modern remake version) in which all but a handful of people were physically plugged into a global computer network:

With my luck, I'd be a "throwback"!

My books are often laced with such gems as "Bull****!" and "Where in the world did that come from!?"

I'm actually pretty calm...

Maybe it's because you take it out on your poor books. :)

I save my rage for my keyboard. I've actually broken keys off while typing about some outrageous thing I've read.
