I was out bicycling around 1 AM to return a video before paying a late fee, and the only thing I could think was about how I could use the half crooked smile appearance of the moon as a literary allusion. I blame the books I’ve been reading lately. Ever since the “Classics” application on the iPhone was made free, I’ve read 4 books; this is in less than a week, and despite me being overwhelmed with work.
For record’s sake, the four were “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu, “Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions” by Edwin Abbott Abbott, “The Jungle Book” by Rudyard Kipling and “Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll. I gave up on Alice half way through, since it was too irritating to read it on the iPhone screen, but the other three were fantastic. I think The Art of War worked quite well with the iphone, since the small parables seemed to flow well from page to page.
