Yesterday I was bemoaning the end of a really good book – very loudly, to anyone who would listen, actually. Wonderful girlfriend heard my plight and downloaded the sequel onto her Nook. I’m always a little sad reading on an e-reader. Call me silly, but I really like being able to feel my progress through the book. It adds to the anticipation to see just how much book I have ahead of me, and I always read a little more carefully as I run out of pages. I slow down, I make myself savor.
Which is why I find it hilariously wonderful that the first chapter is about trying to perform libriomancy through an e-reader.
Sometimes, you just have to sit back and laugh.
