Paper vs Digital

Since dropping my Facebook account I have replaced it with reading a load of books, I suggest you all do the same 🙂

I realised that whenever I had a spare moment I ended up grabbing my iPhone and browse through the timeline and concluded that the large majority of my so called ‘friends’ had nothing interesting to say, how many food/cat/dog pictures does one need to plaster on there? In a nutshell I got really bored with it and deleted my account in May 2013, not one regret since.

Instead I started to read books while sitting down on the loo or while travelling on the London Underground or flying abroad, and this is something I have started to enjoy a lot. Before I used to read books while going on holiday and that was that. I can not imagine myself reading an entire book of a screen, be it an iPad or Kindle or PC screen for that matter, it is too intense for my eyes and I find paper just more relaxing.

The books I have read concern mostly the JFK and RFK assassinations, and that is not because I am such a conspiracy buff (then again anyone claiming Oswald did it alone should actually pay attention to the surplus of evidence around!), but because there is so much info available, be it in media or written word and it is a fascinating subject. To me the question here is actually who wasn’t involved in the conspiracy to kill JFK and cover up the act.

There is a lot of disinformation spread through various authors in books and websites above all and it takes quite some time to sift through all that to form an adequate picture of the whole happenings, and even now after reading close to twenty books on this subject there are probably more questions than answers, one can only speculate and that is something I am not keeping myself busy with,  to me it is fun to read about.

In between all that, while I was away in Holland I just read Enter Night by Mick Wall, the book on Metallica. Especially the first half is excellent and really nails down the vibe of the first ten years and chronicles all the happenings very well, I can attest to it as I was partially there myself.

Been scanning more stuff in, but that will appear here at a later date. I am getting ready to leave for Malta, the missus and I are on a week’s break. Hopefully plenty of pix when we come back.
