Books @ 08:07 pm

So Eric bought another video game today. I always give him crap because he buys like 10,000 games and never finishes any of them. He has about 15 different games going at any one time. So when I gave him crap about this one he read the following quote to me:

"The buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching toward infinity..." - A. Edward Newton

And said 'replace books with video games," somehow I don't think Mr. Newton had that in mind when he wrote it. Video games are a far cry from a good piece of literature. I do really like the quote however, it reminds me exactly why I buy so many books, many of which I will never read. It's because they are a window to something that I wish I could become.
