New Reading

I did go to Borders yesterday. It is disturbing to see the Book Stores I go to go belly up. Fortunately there is still the good old Strand on Broadway and 12. However, I did get a few books mostly my old set of Robert Howard Comics. My favorite is the dour Puritan Solomon Kane who unfortunately comes from MA. I also got Duped which tells of Communist espionage and biographies of Robert Rogers and Thadeus Kosciousco.

I am going to try and to Gnomeo and Juliet with the Sprite. I loathe Elton John but it is my daughter. The things us generically oriented guys endure is sometimes trully amazing.

Beak, Barnes and Noble in our quarter is in big trouble. Talk of shutting them down, I suppose its because people can browse and order online or purchase as E books.

Somehow taking an Ipad or Digital Read to the can or to the easy chair is not same as taking a book.

Does her mother ever kick in for the kid's support?

Forget the father, I know.

People do not read as much and I do not care for E books. I am old school.

Fuck e books. They'll never replace paper. Well, at least if you read Playbody online you don't have to worry about the staples, but otherwise-

There's something about the feel and smell of an old book that a Kindle cannot touch. We are tactile creatures, after all.
