"Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life." - Stephen King - BOOKS - QUOTES / WORDS
"This isn't a man bashing pin. It's a great quote because it's true. Why do any of us have to apologize for either? Women shouldn't be afraid to be "strong," and men shouldn't be penalized for being "weak." "Men are taught to apologize for their weakness, women for their strengths." ~Lois Wyse"
In December 1983 artist Marta Minujin and several helpers spent 17 days building a full-scale model of the Parthenon in a public park in Buenos Aires. It was made almost entirely of books which had been banned by the country’s former dictatorship. “The Parthenon of Books/Homage to Democracy,” as it was titled, stood for about three weeks, after which the public was permitted to disassemble the piece and keep the books.
