“The money is in the misery” –Eric Luper

Not the first time I’ve heard this. Just liked the phrasing I guess. I don’t think I really need to explain it.

Why are there so many radio shows that celebrate love when really we should be consoling all the people recovering from failed relationships? That’s where the money is. The money is in the misery.

It’s from Eric Luper’s Seth Baumgartner’s Love Manifesto which I started reading randomly at the library because it was on a cart in a pile behind Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.

Luper’s book sounds like a teen-angst book. Haven’t read those in a while. I figured that I needed a book to get me in the motion of reading more serious/technical texts this summer so I also got this along with the Sherman Alexie. I’m carrying these two around with Jose Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere (yep, still reading it…I’ll be working on more chapter analyses here this summer) as well as Langville and Meyer’s Google’s PageRank and Beyond.
