And just when I was getting back into the this, Apple has apparently decided to remove the flipping page animation—or any animation whatsoever—from their Books app on iOS16. I don’t even have that transition included in the article! And here I was hoping to do this for fun.
It has been a very interesting year reading-wise. With how work ate up most of my life the past year, I only started to have free time after I resigned. “More books!” I shouted in glee, and I was optimistic. I still took it safe, and planned to read 30 books for the year, especially since I started late in the year. Still, my progress was more than I could’ve hoped for.
Asides — Interactive Fiction, anyone?
I’m thinking of doing bi-monthly reviews for Interactive Fiction. They’re not quite like actual books, but they’re still stories told. People see them as games, but these are also called by a number of other names: kinetic novels, visual novels, etc.
I’ve always loved stories, and games, and well-written stories in games. Hnm. Maybe I should.
Quote for the Day — Love exists…
Oh, love isn’t there to make us happy. I believe it exists to show us how much we can endure.
Hermann Hesse, Wer lieben kann, ist glücklich. Über die Liebe
Quote for the Day — Some of us think holding on makes us strong…
Some of us think holding on makes us strong but sometimes it is letting go.
