Reading is like thinking…like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people’s ideas, like listening to music, like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach.

Unwritten rules apply to inemuri 居眠り, including those who is allowed to do it (only those high up or low down in a company) and how it is performed (the person is supposed to remain upright to show they are still socially engaged in some way – as inemuri literally means, “sleeping while present”).

How to Explain Amazon’s Kindle to Charles Dickens
As a student at Cardiff School of Art and Design, illustrator Rachel Walsh was asked to create a project that would explain something modern/internet-based to somebody who lived and died before 1900. 
Walsh’s innovative idea was to take a large book and create 40 miniature books from its pages in order to explain the kindle to Dickens. The covers are recreations from real books and include Dicken’s own novels, his favourite childhood books, and some of the artist’s own.

historiadecronopio:

”Herkes herhangi bir işten hemen trilyon kazanmak ve ”iş” konusunu kapatarak hayatının geri kalanını tatil biçiminde yaşamak,bir an önce tatile çıkmak,yıllardır yeterince yapamadığı tatilleri topluca, doya doya ve sonsuza dek yaşamak, para kazanma konusunu sabah uyanınca ilk iş olmaktan çıkarmak istiyor. Hiç bunu düşünmemeli insan. Bir ödemeler listesiyle günaydınlaşarak güne başlayacaksak o gün güneş doğmasın daha iyi! Para bankada istiflenmiş olmalı ,gerekince ordan almalı ve o yüklü miktar sayın para durduğu yerde para kazanarak hiç bitmemeli. Asıl ve acilci erek bu, gerisi hikaye ! İşinde başarılı olmak, müdür yardımcılığına terfi etmek, bir ev, bir araba edinmek derdinin peşinde koşuşturarak geçirilen ömür ”yaşamak” dediğimiz şey olamaz.Yoksa çok sevinince yerimizden sıçrayarak, el çırparak ünlediğimiz; ”Yaşasın!” , ”Yaşadık!” , ”Oh! Herif yaşadı!” sözlerinin ne anlamı kalır? İşte şu, dört bir yanı cepler ile bayındır şişman genç adam şu bilince ermiş olarak, masa başına topladığı dokuz kişiyi hemen kafaya alıp yaşamak fiilini bütün harfleriyle ciğerlerine çekip Akdeniz dalgalarına doğru üflemek istiyor.”

Bu müzikle bu alıntı arasında sürprizli bir alaka vardır.

A very special entry in the Classics and Coffee Club for Septmber 29th, which apparently is International Coffee Day. We’ve got the whole process on display here, from the manual grind to the pour-over rig and, what’s that in the corner? Stefan Zweig’s Chess Story?
In The Impossible Exile, his book about Zweig, George Prochnik tells us that Zweig himself frequented Vienna’s Café Imperial. Here it is circa 1920 (before it and the hotel it was located in were requisitioned by Nazis as a place to roll out the red carpet for Hitler).
As always: If you have a photo of an NYRB Classic posed with a cup of coffee or tea, send it to this address and we’ll add it to the Classics and Coffee Club series. And let us know where you bought or borrowed the book from—we’d be glad to shout out places that stock NYRB Classics.
