Thursday Thoughts...

Fight evil. Read books. 


I'm not sure if the brevity of this quote appeals simply because I am weary - but I do know I smiled when I first saw the T-shirt!

Inherent in this quote is the thought that reading books must be good for you. That books are on the side of the good-guys and that books will help good triumph over evil.  I like to think that books do help us find the way; do let us access truth and information; and do help us be properly informed, and that maybe this combination of things is what we need in our fight against evil.

Even if you want to ignore the sense of fighting evil (whatever that may be), you are still left with the idea that reading books is a good thing to do and I have to agree.

It almost says to me - when in doubt read a book. Which is pretty much what is top of my list (but not always something I can actually do) whenever I need to answer the question "what to do now?"

I'll head off now with the virtuous thought that any time I read a book I am fighting evil. Yay me!

  2. Yay! Now that is a worthwhile cause. Fight evil with books. Laughing at Jo's comment.

  3. Why am I imagining an army of books setting out to sort out the world's ills.......?

    1. ooh, I just got that image from your words..books look good in lines...
