When I think of reading, I strangely think of the Madeleine cake: what a texture, what a unique flavor of the poetry of living! Not only that the little Madeleine cakes go well with reading, but Marcel Proust made them worldwide famous among the voracious readers: “[…] one of those squat, plump little cakes called “petites madeleines,” which look as though they had been molded in the fluted valve of a scallop shell.” And he goes on describing his experience:
And soon, mechanically, dispirited after a dreary day with the prospect of a depressing morrow, I raised to my lips a spoonful of the tea in which I had soaked a morsel of the cake. No sooner had the warm liquid mixed with the crumbs touched my palate than a shudder ran through me and I stopped intent upon the extraordinary thing that was happening to me. An exquisite pleasure had invaded my senses, something isolated, detached, with no suggestion of its origin. And at once the vicissitudes of life had become indifferent to me, its disasters innocuous, its brevity illusory – this new sensation having had on me the effect which love has of filling me with a precious essence; or rather this essence was not in me it was me.
PDFs is the true portable format
The excerpt is just a little crumble of Marcel Proust’s masterpiece Remembrance of Things Past, which has no less than 4300 pages! Yes, indeed, this would mean something like 17 books of around 250 pages each – or even a bit more. It would cost a whole lot of money too, if bought in a nice and neat edition.
Of course, nowadays there is the option of using brand new technology and the electronic devices that make our lives easy, keep our homes minimal and our pockets full. After all, what would be the use of occupying a whole book shelf with expensive volumes of one only novel? As precious as it might be, you can actually have it stored and enjoy reading it from that tiny device that you can keep on your lap! See this comparison of ebook readers on Wikipedia
