What are you doing with all those Kindles — using them as coasters?
We must mix in some books, people.
Unplugged: Novels and biographies have come to look out of place at airport waiting areas. While reading a paperback in the St. Louis airport last week, a kid asked what happened. Did my smartphone break down?
I said no, my $9.95 flop-open cell phone had been dropped in the dog’s water bowl again and was home in a drawer with the hammers and nails. I had chosen to travel unplugged for the calmness and thoughtfulness of it all.
This appeared to frighten the boy, who spoke no more.
Published books reek of intelligence and discipline.
Perhaps this is why there’s a video game on the Kindle.
