“More than any other form of entertainment, video games tend to divide rooms into Us and Them. We are, in effect, admitting that we like to spend our time shooting monsters, and They are, not unreasonably, failing to find the value in that.”

Kristina You've gone nuts! I have a few of these books you just added, if you ever want to borrow. (Brief History, Glass Books, Book Thief, Lake of Dead Languages... I also have some Egypt book by Zahi Hawass, but not the one you listed.)


Michelle Okay seriously. Take a break from reading and watch TV for once! I can't keep up with you!


Kristina Hey, this is fun! Thanks for giving me another way to spend too much time online. :)
