An internet rant is a beautiful thing. Because, why even be online, with all the anonymity that brings, and even attempt to contain all that angst. It's why we have comments on everything from blogs to Youtube to news stories. People need to complain! We have things on our chest and we've got to get them off...and our significant others are just plain tired of hearing the same thing over and over again.
In light of this, I decided to institute a new feature on the blog where I can bring up whatever's on my mind, be it terrible book covers, titles, ideas, bloggers (okay, probably just Pat), you name it and have some fun with it.
I know, two "What's the Deal With" 's this week. I must be really grumpy. Finals does that to me.
Does anyone else find it a bit pathetic that the way we're selling eReaders these days is to make them anything but an eReader?
They now have internet access, games, apps, etc. An infinite possibility to waste time by doing anything other than read. Why do people hate reading so much?
I know, as a social-network-connected blogger, I should be embracing such things, but I obviously have enough things to keep me from reading, the primary reason for doing any of this.
And that's why I decided against the Kindle Fire, Nook Tablet, and any other eReader that's not just for reading.
