    looks like u could get some milage out of that title.
    insert the words: take, listen, watch for read.
    always like ur simple approach to these.

  6. Don't you think that sometimes, it's the book that chooses us? :) I have books sitting in my «bibliothèque» which I haven't read, but will someday when the time is right (well, hopefully!)

    I love your simple approach to the theme and your strong layout.:) Cheers!

  7. Yes, I agree!! Books are food for the brain. Great post!

  8. Oh yes. I leave books unfinished and walk out of movies. There are so many better ones.

  10. What does that say about me because I feel I read a lot of crap. Food for thought there.

  11. "Eat" instead of read would be a fun twist. I just discovered popcorn jelly beans with my kids. Wow, why? when popcorn stands alone as it's own food group.

  14. Your sense of humor kills me...

  15. Amen. LOL..love it!

  16. Good thoughts. Always love to see what you'll come up with. Check out this on Amazon when you get a moment... The Penguin Classics Library Complete Collection. You'd need about 20 years free to finish them so choose wisely!

  17. Couldn't agree more! But you have to sift through a lot of crap before you find the really good ones, ya know? I really like this, the composition feels so nice to me...

  18. it's why i stick to children's books, they're harder to write, and nicer to read!

  19. Another zany, thought-provoking piece. I always enjoy your line drawings.

  20. too true. there's nothing worse than getting lost in a never-ending stream of nothing but words. great entry.

    ReplyDelete
  21. nice sketches! And so true, also with TV, life is too short ...
    don't waste it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. you're absolutely right! well drawn... love the composition :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Amen. But I like Stephen King, no matter what anyone says. He's not crap.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Very true, but you can still buy the book for it's cover!

    Strong, confident line work as usual!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You are right, even if at certain times of life some garbage literature helped me escape from reality

    ReplyDelete
  26. life is too short to eat fewer than 31 flavors, chacho!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Cool drawing, good point:). (Somehow, it is still easier to resist reading crap than watching it - thanks for stopping by my "devil and angel";)

    ReplyDelete
  28. And I forgot to mention that you have a very nice handwriting! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Right! That's why I love "Mafalda"
    Take care!

  31. Really interesting first visit....I'll be back because reading your blog isn't crappy! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  32. That is a good slogan!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, this is a thorny problem: I get an impression about a book...only if I read it. :D
    But, your concept it's so bright, it's indisputable.

    Great style, dynamic composition and typesetting, expressive drawing, indeed. Many compliments for the whole blog!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I agree! I like the perspective in this drawing and its to-the-point message.

    ReplyDelete
