Diary Entry 461

Dear Diary,

Another package has arrived at my doorstep, this time containing a weird device that looks like a box, with a black screen and a couple of controls labeled TV, two discs, and instructions about how to put them in the box. The first disc is titled Time Enough at Last. I viewed this one first.

It’s about a bank teller, and all he wanted to do was read, however, no one would let him. The next day, a bomb goes off while the teller is eating his lunch in a vault, and he is the only one that survived. He finally had enough time to read! As he bends down to pick up the first book, he stumbles, and his glasses fall off and shatter.

This made me a little sad. Books are so very important for the minds and to live in a world where no one would let you read is a bore! His wife stated that she wanted to have conversations and the number of conversations they could have had over these books was endless if she had only given them the chance.

I am starting to sense a trend with these packages.

Until next time,
