this article in The Telegraph.
Seriously, Joan Brady? E-books are only for porn? Paper books are status symbols?
What f***ing century does this woman live in? Everyone knows that iPhones and iPads are the current status symbols.
All snark aside, I feel sorry for someone who is so out of touch with reality.
Personally, I read for the contents, not the status symbol of the container. And quite frankly, my Joan Elizabeth Lloyd hardcovers (erotica, read) are on the shelf with The Collected Works of Shakespeare (plays and poetry, read) and the Twilight series (YA vampire romance, read all of them but Breaking Dawn).
I don't think Joan B. realizes she lost a bunch of readers from her double slam.
I just wish we had e-readers twenty-five years ago. Then I wouldn't have had to deal with awkward young men on the subway, trying to pick me up by talking about the Star Trek novel I was reading.
