I like to read preface and foreword. Those are the first things I read in any book (that have those).

As a book's author(s), that's the first place where you can impress me.

So I watched -> Read -> watched "The perks of being wallflower".

Yes I'll judge a technical book by the presence or absence of Index.

Finished reading "Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution" by Steven Levy

My previous plan was to watch movie on gnu year's eve. But considering how unsatisfied I become after watching one, I am reading fiction. :-)

"Modern definitions that addiction is ultimately a bad thing. A behavior is addictive only if the rewards it brings now are eventually outweighed by damaging consequences. Breathing and looking at wooden blocks aren’t addictive because, even if they’re very hard to resist, they aren’t harmful."

I was curious how the Pet Semetary movie has been made, and like always they have butchered the story. Whenever I get to choose between watching movie or reading , I always choose books. And this time too I'm satisfied with my decision.

Finished reading "Pet Semetary" by Stephen King. The story was amazing and really enjoyed myself.

is great for managing ebooks but heavy on resources even when you just want to read the book and the ebook viewer is not that great.

Do you guys know any better "light-weight" alternative for *viewing* ebooks in GNU/Linux? Right now I'm trying out .

Searching the internet about how to write a book journal. I got myself a red notebook friday, and decided to make it a book journal. This shoud be a major step in ditching goodreads.

I have been ignoring a book for 2-3 years because I thought it would be boring. But today I accidentally read the preface and first few pages and found it very interesting. It has also been adopted to a great movie starring popular actors. Again proven true, Never judge a book by its cover.
