Quick and interesting read. I'd heard the overview, but didn't realize the era that it occurred. 
Also, this was loaned to me in paper form. It was the first paper book I've read in a few years. I'm struck by how different it makes the experience, but also how the pros and cons stack up.  Maybe I'm just pragmatic, but while there are some serious positives to a paper book, in my ledger the Kindle wins hands down.
 

In terms of the reading experience, I could go either way. I think my reading comprehension and retention are better with paper than with Kindle. But you can get some amazing deals with Kindle. Have you checked out https://www.Bookbub.com , https://www.bookgorilla.com and https://www.earlybirdbooks.com ? Their titles aren't always great but the deals change daily...
 

i go both ways myself

the convenience of digital and the experience of going to a great library...

both are impressive

odd but intriguing: 

i'm currently in line for the kindle implant

due to current regs i'll need to have it installed in low earth orbit on a blue origin space sled

I'm personally more of a crocheter. I'm probably not manly enough for knitting.  ;-)

Canada’s ‘Superwoman’: Margot Kidder  These anecdotes about Kidder reminded me of how Hemingway lived (artistic fame, physical danger, too much sex, liberal causes, accumulated damage physical and mental...), and of this great book by Clancy Sigal, a blacklisted Hollywood agent and screen writer.
 

People who play that hard tend to get hurt.
