At the LA Times, my former student David Sarno considers the Kindle e-reader. Some very funny quotations there...

(I want a really good e-reader that will let me have the riches of Gale's Eighteenth-Century Collections Online at my fingertips for convenient reading delight, so basically a PDF reader--I am still thinking that if only Apple would make one it is kind of more likely to be the device that everyone will fall in love with...)

  1. Fun and well-balanced piece.

    I am hugely amused by Franzen's reference to truth and integrity being followed by a comparison to "the difference between vows taken in a shoe store and vows taken in a cathedral." As any such difference is supremely superficial Franzen has effectively made both sides of the case....
