The reason I will never buy an eReader.
hiimspencer: This truly breaks my heart I pledge to read the printed word As an owner of a Kindle, let me just say, reading eBooks does not defeat the purpose of a book! It breaks my heart bookstores are not earning enough to continue business. And yes, I have kept my paperback copies and refer to them still. But having an eReader isn’t an insult to the point of reading. In fact,...

It’s a struggle to read. I guess it’s hard to follow through after the action packed A Storm of Swords. The title already hints there’s a lot of recovering to go through…an aftermath of what once was. I need to stop. I don’t want to spoil. So to say this without ruining the reading experience: Martin should’ve made the book’s journey the destination.

Sorry, but I did NOT appreciate the pretentious tone of this piece. It is not the fault of a student in poverty who cannot afford a better education that he/she cannot read an expensive magazine/book commuting. Or that carrying one gets in the way of rushing to work, or makes your bag vulnerable to getting mugged. Yes, the educational system should work on the humanities, but let’s not rag...
