Posted here, for your learning enjoyment, is a new video in which John Green kicks off the CRASH COURSE Literature mini-series with a reasonable set of questions. Why do we read? What’s the point of reading critically? John will argue that reading is about effectively communicating with other people. Unlike a direct communication though, the writer has to communicate with a stranger, through time and space, with only “words on a page.”

OK, first off, we gotta say that this video might contain spoilers if you have not read the book yet. Here’s a wonderful “Book Review” Video that explains a true sci-fi classic, “Fahrenheit 451″ by Ray Bradbury. It’s a dystopian novel that the Author wrote in 1953 and has since become a must-read on many Book Lover’s Reading Lists. The novel presents a future American society where books are outlawed and Firemen burn any house that contains them. Sadly, Ray Bradbury recently died. But his extremely intriguing stories will live on forever.
About the video you’re about to watch:
This guy has an interesting take on the book and explains some of the unusual details to it’s storyline. Plus, it’s kinda funny!

OK, I hope the title to this post is not misleading. It’s NOT about clever “Book Design” but more about ways to enjoy reading & storing/displaying books in a clever way. Check out the photos, you’ll see what we’re talking about!
This “READ” Bookcase for the wall is very funny & would make a great weekend project. So, go to your local Home Depot, get some supplies, and then get on it! The next pic shows some interesting “Metal Art Bookends” we came across on Etsy ( the one with the Black Birds is my personal favorite ). Last, but not least, is this amazing new product, the “Reading-Pod”! This device allows you to add a special reading space outside. Yes, go ahead & admit it, you really really NEED it!

Presented here are just a few random “Book Lover” Humor Photos we have come across while wasting our life on the Internet. The one that says, “Never Judge a Book By It’s Movie” is so true. Remember this simple Life Rule, “The Book is Always Better Than the Film”.
