Why I shall never buy an e-reader

Because I can't parse words on a screen or view a story at all holistically, unless in fact I wrote it myself. (But that's down to the many re-readings a fic goes through in the writing and editing process.) That poetry discussion amongst Vale and Singh and Kai and Irene stuns me by turning up in the first Library book in the course of a cab ride, while I recall it happening in someone's apartment in an early draft of book 3.

And it's not like this is my first reading of Book one, either.
