“People don’t read any more. It’s a sad state of affairs. Reading’s the only thing that allows you to use your imagination. When you watch films it’s someone else’s vision, isn’t it?”

– Lemmy Kilmister, founder of the band Motorhead and author of several books about the band and the music industry

I don’t agree that people don’t read anymore – otherwise, Kindles and Nooks wouldn’t be such hot properties! But I do agree that movies and television take a great book and take away all the imagination. They tell you what the places look like and people sound like and sometimes they get it very, very wrong.
