“You don’t know how lucky you are being a monkey. Because consciousness is a terrible curse. I think. I feel. I suffer. And all I ask in return is the opportunity to do my work. And they won’t allow it… because I raise issues.”
Today’s very exciting loot after a short trip to the nearest mall: “The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2007" and "Where The Wild Things Are”.
Inspired by Shinji/@thegimp's finds at Booksale, I decided to try my luck. I've been eyeing this book for months, but didn't really want to order it online. It's edited by Dave Eggers and has an introduction by Sufjan Stevens. Two of my faves!
Also, got the DVD of “Where The Wild Things Are”. I’m not sure if I want to watch it already because I haven’t read the book. I’ll probably try to read it first.
