Book of celebration

December, month of celebration. Do you agree? Well, at least there is so many important day on this month (in Thailand) as I know

image

This could be good magazine to checkout the events that already happened or some are on the way.
It is a nice picture magazine. The concept sound interesting, but the content is still soft and the payment to subcribe is rather expensive. (I guess, due to target for event organizer not for people in general).

Raise up high

Things and technology change… would gives many new pictures to our society.

image

What do u see in this picture?
– turtoring on skytrain?
– doing home work with mom?
– preparing before head to exam room?
– just take a note?
ETC.

Whatever they did, this was really new picture for me.

Words onLine

When u chat, talk, looking at picture, stroll around or using social media, how much do u use dictionary? Ummmmmm (think hard for a while)
For me not so often.

Line-dictionary

Here is the Oxford dictionary on Line Coporate. The famous application of the world just announce this sub-app for customer.
Still not sure how often I will use if I did not use to check word with my foreign friend.
Any more idea would be glad to hear.

Free in palm

Reading free is everywhere. Now that I have smartphone. So I search free book available. Although you have to have credit card to regist,  but you do not need to buy it right the way. You can read the sample for free first and decide it later.

image

It may not new or so popular sometimes. However, I strongly think book never out of date. If there any free way to read or interesting news about book please share

What ma name?

Name could tell many things. Especially, name of story, book or magazine. It could tell character, type or taste of reader who would read it too.

image

But… not quite sure about this name. Although, I read editor talk and some description of this magazine. It told that this is a lifestyle magazine with load of curosities, updates and news which teenage may like. Still not sure why “giraffe”?

Book vs. Movie

Although I like reading book, sometimes I found movie is more enjoyable than read book version.
Ex. I like watched Charlies and chocolate factory more than read book. But, I like reading classic story that Disney has been adapted and same with biography or non fiction story more than watch movie. Probably it is about perception and image u create in your head too.

image

Hollywood would make almost anything, but sometimes they need help which big thing they need is good story. So where is the best place to find? Definitely from book, right?

Shoo shoo library

Shooo shoooo… all aboard… wait for me!

image

Yes this is a special train for laid back or some who like travel by train. More grand  with kids and library corner.
Thank you for your attention and I wish you join our reading next time.

0 book library

What do you picture when I say ‘library’? For myself would be tons of book, shelves, librarian behind the desk, etc. What about library that has no book at all?

image

This is library in US, the first that has no book at all, but replace with all electronic stuffs. Means e-books and read by computer, taplet, mobile, ipad instead.
Good things about this library might be friendly for those allegic to dust. Also, those who like programing or good at computer might have another path to choose as their career.

AEC Library

It’s been alert about AEC in Thailand for a year and a half now. Many knows very little of it. Here they promote and try to provide good information that looks nice at the same time to citizen.

image

This is an electronic library or digital library that containing resource about AEC and it located in Bangkok. Many questions in my head again.
1. Why library?
2. Only in Bangkok? And expecting every citizen understand about AEC?
3. Why digital? Any handbook for those who’s not familiar with IT stuffs?
etc…..
I did not oppose. Please, dont get me wrong. I like library, whether normal or digital one. But still cannot find answer for those questions.

Put into this!

I have no idea how the first person got thought to create book in this shape. What I can say to that person is “well-done”. If you look through the publishing history, you might notice that  they did not change much from the past.

image

Not only change so little, but the shape of its has been used and adapt into many things. Such as collecting bag in the picture.
Yeah, it looks vintage, warm and cool in the same time. Cannot resist to look at it right?
