Collect books, even if you don’t plan on reading them right away. Nothing is more important than an unread library.

Last week, Amazon informed us that for ten dollars per month, Kindle users can have unlimited access to over six hundred thousand books in its library. But it shouldn’t cost a thing to borrow a book, Amazon, you foul, horrible, profiteering enemies of civilization.

It’s been 13 years since Audrey Tautou captured the hearts of cinema fans the world over as Amélie, the adorably meddlesome and pure-hearted waif at the center of Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s global hit of the same name. She’s played a sweeping variety of characters in the years since her breakthrough, from historical figures (Coco Before Chanel) to maniacs (He Loves Me… He Loves Me Not). Save for a lone Hollywood venture opposite Tom Hanks in The Da Vinci Code and Stephen Frears’ British thriller, Dirty Pretty Things, the majority of Tautou’s work has been in her native France.

If someone reads fewer books than you do, it does not make them less intelligent than you. It does not even make them a worse reader. If someone reads different types of books than you do, it doesn’t make them a bad reader, either. It just means they are a different human being than you.
