Chances are, if you’re reading this you probably have fond memories of playing videogames at a young age. Leigh Alexander– an esteemed games and culture critic whose work has appeared in The Guardian, Slate, The Atlantic, and many other places– has just released a slim memoir about growing up, gaming, and using the Internet. The book is called Breathing Machine: A Memoir of Computers, and you can read an excerpt here, and buy the ebook here.
I read it over the weekend and enjoyed it very much. If you remember playing old videogames, hanging out in AOL chatrooms, and the first time you saw the Internet’s dark corners, you’ll find plenty to love about it, too. Pick it up on Kindle, iBooks, or the ebook platform of your choice here.
