"why not bookplex..."
well, i do love architecture, music, photography and everything about arts and of course...books too. when we were very much young (still do not have our own driving license), my parent made a point for me and my elder brother to visit library every weekend cos where i came from books were really expensive (in those days...you do know what they said about penguins...very rare). heck when i grew up. i do hate library. library just got stuck in 18th century and never move on. when you are in library, it feels like you are in 100 thousands old graveyard, all those cobwebbs, those smells, i say spooky.
but my love for books...still. then, now and forever. never dies. never. now with all the smarter phones, notebooks, flat screens, a, e, i or u,blackberry (mental note: i've never thought in mylife, the word "blackberry" can be used hand-in-hand with the word "torch", very creative!), strawberry, whatever they've called these days, i can have my reading materials anywhere and anytime i want.who would want to be in library?
cineplex...why there isnt bookplex?
why not those bookshops as big as ikea stores, as artsy as modern art galleries, as cool as theme parks, as hip as virgin records, as wild as national parks, with how the world been polluted today, no harm to have some indoor camping sites. open for 24 hours, organising sleep-over, slumber party, with poem & musical recital, bedtime stories, book clubs reunion...with pass-on marshmallows and serving hot chocs...
i say why not bookplex...
why not makes anything associates with books, reading sounds more artsy, fashionable, younger and up-to-date
anyway literature is actually "the art of written works"
when it is regard as an art. it is rebel, revolt and evolve.
who could have blame when everyones nowadays find lady G's and justin B's words are more romantic, mysterious than William Blake's and Kahlil Gibran's words...
