  • Child:

    We'll wake up the books.

  • Me:

    This older generation pisses me off so much

  • Therapist:

    Why?

  • Me:

    Because when I was growing up, we were forcefed the idea that if we didn't want to be 'flipping burgers at McDonalds,' then we'd better go to college.

  • Therapist:

    And?

  • Me:

    And now we've all gone to college, have degrees, can't get a damn job, and the same people that told us to go to college call us entitled assholes because we refuse to flip burgers

  • Therapist:

I went away in my head, into a book. That was where I went whenever real life was too hard or too inflexible.

A Reading Room for One

For the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale artist Marta Wengorovius teamed with architect Francisco Aires Mateus to produce this little slice of paradise; a reading cabin for one.     

The simple wood structure is fit for one person, holds one bookshelf and has a raised seating area and that’s it. It is light by a skylight.

The artist populated the bookshelf by asking 20 guests to choose three books each for the library.

"Sharing this itinerant project creates a community between people who read the books, the guests who chose the books and the people who will read the books wherever the cabin shall pass," says Wengorovius.

The project had its first opening on December 2012 in Paredes, north of Portugal. The library is scheduled to be in a different place each year. If exhibited in a foreign country the books will be translated and available in the native language of the country.

We are always looking for the book it is necessary to read next.

Don’t judge a book by its cover, HA, more like buy the same book four times because they keep coming out with prettier and prettier covers. 

I love books. Take that book you’re holding! It looks ill-written, ill-conceived, full of bad ideas expressed badly - I bet it lacks narrative arcs and an appreciation for the flow of language. It looks like the worst book in the history of books! But here’s the thing - it’s still a book. And I love books. So, you do not deserve to even hold it.
