However, I’d Buy An E-Book Reader For A Buck

You’d think that since I’m such a book glommer, I must be just as obsessed with newspapers. Not so. No matter how many times people call me trying to get me to subscribe to the local papers (and yes, I mean you, the interrupter of dinners!), there’s no way I’m forking over my cash for the stuff. There’s such a gulf between the two types of print media. Unlike books, newspapers are unwieldy and the ink smears. I can find the articles online. And it’s just a waste of trees for something with such limited re-readability–although one could say the same for toilet paper. I suppose one advantage the paper has over the computer is that it’s lighter to carry around. But I’m not a news junkie so I know I’m not missing much.
