Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream | Paulo Coelho, Alan R. Clarke
post image

“Everything that happens once can never happen again. But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time.”
@Kaitlyn, finished it today. I guess it was a sign to read it, since you found it and brought it into the office :)

Connie Yaaay! Did you like it? 4y
thesaurusrex That is such a gorgeous picture! 4y
shelly @Connie yup, it was a pretty quick read -- very mystical but I can see, kaitlyn's positivity comment about it as well 4y
kaitlyn I'm just a pessimistic Polly lol 4y

Paprika | Yasutaka Tsutsui
post image

Connie, saw this at The Strand this weekend, said its for the Murakami lover, so thought of you. BTW, if you can read the small type -- his previous book has a interesting title, "Salmonella Men on Planet Porno". :)

rwrkb What a great cover! 4y
Connie I saw Paprika the animated film, maybe it's based on this story!! Awesome cover too 😎 4y

The Sketchbook Project is the world's largest library of artists' books. The collection is on view at The Brooklyn Public Library. Next time you're in Williamsburg take a look, you may be inspired to create your own sketchbook for the collection ;)

todd My sad story...I had a sketchbook journal from my early days in NYC. Lost it to the city streets when it fell out of my bag...still makes me upset 😩 4y

Ron Howard's Melville inspired movie opened this weekend. But it seems Hunger Games is killing it.

Steve Jobs | Walter Isaacson
post image

Starting to read today today, interesting in the introduction the author, mentions that the only change Jobs made to this book was the cover, not what he wrote. Jobs designed the cover -- all in the marketing and presentation of course :)

jeff This was a great read. If you like Isaacson's biographies, Einstein is another to check out. 4y
shelly I heard the Einstein book is a good one :) 4y
