So today is the big day. Or maybe it was yesterday. Anyway, Irrationally Yours: On Missing Socks, Pickup Lines, and Other Existential Puzzles
should now be available for purchase at your local bookseller.
What is a book? Aline Grüneisen recently released a video in which she explained, if I recall correctly, that a book is something like an analog or paper version of Wikipedia https://vimeo.com/127289358
I didn't find that explanation particularly helpful. I'm not very technically savvy, but as I understand it, a "book" is like an e-book (hence the name), but it consists of sheets of paper, numbered, and physically joined together. ( Fifty Shades of Grey
is a book. You may have seen some women carrying that around with them.)
I intend to buy one of these Irrationally Yours
books and carry it around with me, as a conversation piece or conversation-starter, kind of like a puppy-dog. I'm quite taken by the aquamarine blue cover.Irrationally Yours
features illustrations by William Haefeli. So if I ever get bored, or too depressed from looking at Facebook on my smartphone, I can always flip through the Irrationally Yours
book and look at the illustrations. (http://38.media.tumblr.com/5fd2a037e31acfbecbe889a2e9a13c9b/tumblr_mlh0v3L7x21qav5oho1_500.gif
Of course, Irrationally Yours
is also available as a normal digital download, in text or audio formats.
