Sobre mimI'm an engineering and biology student in Arkansas who is interested in agriculture, permaculture, lost technology, solving the world's ecological crises, philosophy, Christianity, post-industrialism, urbanism, architecture, science, culture, and a lot of other things. I also love books.

In Defense of Books:
I think that the hard, physical form of books is still the most reliable and secure format for information storage. Digital form has its place, but when and where there is no reliable electricity source, hard copies still work and require no complex infrastructure to access the information they contain.
Physical copies also happen to be the most satisfying form for reading, giving tactile response and an organic feeling to the user.
The book as a reading platform lends itself best to continuous, consistent thought processes. The Internet and television, on the other hand, lend themselves best to short bursts of information with instant gratification requiring no effort from the user and training users for the digestion of context-less bits of information. I feel, as Neil Postman did, that this difference between books and other media is a strong reason for keeping books around.
The preservation of books will also reduce the need to harvest precious forests for new copies. Equally importantly, the preservation of books will help prevent or lessen the contraction of available knowledge inherent in the possibility of the collapse of industrialized society as we know it.

Sobre a minha bibliotecaIt's pretty eclectic. I love old books and any book relevant to my interests and hobbies.

Also, I only add book to this profile if I own a hard copy of it. This library reflects books I currently own. If I sell or give away a book, I remove it from my profile.
