Book Bitz....

Now, this irks me: A recent news release documented the appalling fact that 1 in 4 Americans did not read a single book last year. Sad, but not completely surprising. But the part that irks me is why not the headline: 3 of 4 Americans Enjoy Reading Books? Books Still Appeal in Electronic Age? But please enjoy the photo accompanying the news story of a woman smoking, drinking, and reading at a bar. Even the bartenders seem nonplussed.

Somebody out there is still reading books... NYT Paper Cuts: A Blog About Books
Try a smaller book, then.... Cabinet: A Minor History of Miniature Writing
