Ein Erklärvideo zu Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

[Zitat] Unkommentiert – 1904

I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. If the book we’re reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for? So that it will make us happy, as you write? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kind of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us. That is my belief. Franz Kafka

[Infografik] Eine Klassifikation von Buchliebhabern & anderen Lesern

Laura E. Kelly hat eine Infografik erstellt, deren Titel “Which Book Reader Species Are You?” lautet. Sie nahm damit eine Klassifikation unterschiedlicher Lesertypen vor:

“We all live in the Domain of Readers—but what species of book reader are you? This fun, appropriately wordy infographic is my homage to the classic Linnaean classification charts of plants and living things. In this case, we’re describing and classifying close to 50 reader species—from the folks who see books as precious display objects to those who sort of hate reading.”
