“The best fanta…

“The best fantasy is written in the language of dreams. It is alive as dreams are alive, more real than real … for a moment at least … that long magic moment before we wake.

Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end. Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark. Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot. Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines. Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true?

We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.

They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to middle Earth.

-George R.R. Martin

va·de me·cum

[vey-dee mee-kuhm, vah-] 

noun, plural va·de me·cums.

1. something a person carries about for frequent or regular use.
2. a book for ready reference; manual; handbook.
The purpose of this blog is to become a guide, a handbook of sorts, for those of you who enjoy reading. I also hope that it becomes a sort of eye opener for people who don’t really think much of books.
Each day I will try to make posts with different themes:
Education Mondays
Fantasy Tuesdays 
Video Wednesdays
Romance Thursdays 
Science Fiction Fridays
Shall we begin this journey?

Books are boring,

Reading by Geiru

Reading opens minds

Or is that something we tell ourselves to get out of a potentially time wasting activity?

Books are a gateway; open a book and you will find yourself in a whole new world. Information in books can be mundane or so insane you won’t believe what you just read.

One book is all you need to open your mind to the infinite possibilities of this world and the worlds beyond.
