I always thought this was an interesting take on a #bookmark - if anyone remembers SNES jrpgs like final fantasy. :)
Sold my first book on Alibris today. Cost me $1. Wanted to sell it for $5, but hundreds of copies were selling for $1.99, so I went with the flow. Got $3.99 in shipping credit, paid $1.65 in fees, shipped for $4.80. So in the end, I paid a few bucks to ship a book to someone. The lesson was worth it though. I might start trying to sell the books I bind and paint. One day, a physical bookstore.
I love #JimZub #PatrickRothfuss #RickAndMorty and #DungeonsAndDragons #D&D so this was great for me. It's nice that the book does go through an intro of what d&d is in the first few sections. I like that they address the topic of power-gamers, and I get why Rick is the example. I just like Rick's character, so I had to suppress a bit of my Rick&Morty fandom in reading this book in order to appreciate the story Rothfuss & Zub told about D&D.
“To all the robots who question their programming“ - that's the dedication of this book and it speaks to me. We are a bit like robots and we are programmed, in small and large ways.
I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of the autonomous robot born free and the young boy who was sold into slavery and taught/programmed to be useful to his owners. I liked the juxtaposition of the pirate taking mood-altering drugs and the robot tweaking its code.
