Thank you all for welcoming Beatrice with such enthusiasm. I really do think my Writerly Life has been greatly enhanced by her adoption--ur, purchase. And I'll be sure to let you know how the Scrivener thing is going.
Today's get-the-writers-chatting question:
Is a Kindle or a Sony Reader on your Christmas wish list this year?
The prices are slowly dropping, the number of electronic-reader owners rising. From where I sit, it seems to me that the bulk of users are of bookish ilk: agents, editors, rabid librarians. I have yet to see an average joe-drinker curled up in a coffee shop with a Kindle.
Macs, yes. iPhones, yes. Everywhere. But no readers. Not yet.
Or maybe I live in an electronically illiterate area.
So, what about you? Do you have one? Want one? Will they ultimately replace all traditional books? Are trees across the planet rejoicing?
I'm going to go heat up my coffee. Good way to start the weekend, don't you think?
