People need words. I like to bring the words to them.
Books are cool. Period.
I've led a professional life surrounded by books and privately, reading has often been the calm that centers my life.
Because I resent the use of the standard TWEET number limitation to express my self and I enjoy ripping the bindings off first print books and using them as bracelets.
How Do you Read?
I read large print books, Kindle books with large print, books on CD and tape, and audio books downloaded to my shuffle. ??I love books, so despite my visual impairment, I read any way I can.
Books in bed, books on the couch, books propped up at the kitchen table.
growing, learning, escape.
but don't ask me to write em.

Colophon for our Reading in Public Reading Chair!
Design: Chris Allen Woodworking
jul 20 2009
The RIP reading chair is fabulous!
If you've been following us on Twitter (http://twitter.com/readinginpublic/) you'll know that we've been watching the reading chair come together. Photographs are on Flicker and it is just gorgeous.
In addition to its original function as seating for our various readers, the Book Chair was designed to be mobile, and, when set up, to work as temporary storage for any reading material.
Chris Allen, our brilliant furniture designer, went a step further and is building an ottoman, which fits into the storage cavity under the seat, and can be popped out to serve as additional seating should we need that. The chair has two casters in its base, and the lid (which opens much like a book, gently curving at the hinge) can be fixed in its open position for us to easily wheel it from place to place. It was constructed out of plywood, with the natural banding of the laminated wood referencing book pages, and when the lid is closed it becomes a simple cube.
