Kids Are Alright, Like E-books

Onscreen writers “can be cynical hacks, genre stars or dislocated sportswriters. In romantic comedies, the writer is often a witty Lothario or a good-natured wimp. Either way, the profession’s primary function is to provide the character with plenty of free time.”
Jane Austen can stimulate brain function. Presumably, so can other authors.
“I am posting this for people who have Kindles, are in the U.S., and might want to get this. I am not posting this for people to tell me that they hate Kindles, hate all e-books, or are grumpy because they do not live in a country where they can download this.” Neil Gaiman makes a PA on Facebook.
You know who loves e-books? Kids.
As for the old-fashioned, paper kind, well, nowadays they’re less “reading material” and more “business cards.”
