A book worth rereading

With the new Carrie movie coming out, Stephen King’s book came into my mind again. It had been forgotten for a long time and I don’t know why, since it was one of my favorite books when I was a teenager. 

Although the supernatural pyrotechnics are handled with King's customary aplomb, it is the carefully drawn portrait of the little horrors of small towns, high schools, and adolescent sexuality that give this novel its power and assures its place in the King canon. --Simon Leake

So, if you're a Stephen King fan you should definitively reread Carrie. If you never read any of Stephen King's books, you should start with Carrie.

And the 1976 movie directed by Brian De Palma is also worth watching.

Neil Gaiman: Why our future depends on libraries, reading and daydreaming

Albert Einstein was asked once how we could make our children intelligent. His reply was both simple and wise. "If you want your children to be intelligent," he said, "read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales." He understood the value of reading, and of imagining. I hope we can give our children a world in which they will read, and be read to, and imagine, and understand.
An amazing text by Neil Gaiman about the importance of reading and using our imagination published on The Guardian.
