    hahahahaahahaa – did he kill that thing and then give it back to janis with fly guts on it?

    I agree. Tried a kindle once and immediately went back to my hard copies. Although, I can certainly see the advantages in some cases, such as air travel.

    I can’t comment on the value of an ebook as a flyswatter, though.

    I love the sound of a paper page being turned, and the gentle thump when you close a book..

    I have a glorious stack of hardcover and paperback books just waiting to take a ride in my backpack or purse, to be opened at a moment’s notice. :)

    I have both – but I write and Kindle lets me publish and make good money when traditional publishing would not. I price my books at $2.99 and still get more than I would if it was paper.

    I prefer hardcopy books for reading, not hitting flies. In response to @ paulproteus my mom lends me whole books which I give back when done. Other than that I go to the library.

    Did Arlo give the Kindle back cuz it stopped working after he hit the fly?

    I could never accept clay – give me a good solid rock to read. As for Kindle – I prefer it to the Nook only because it’s what I own and use daily. When I want a book (text, not photo), I download it in <60 seconds and usually pay about half the price. I got The Jungle for 99 cents, the complete Twain free.

    @Tony

    May I recommend my favorite two Twain books? I love “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” and “Puddinhead Wilson.”
    Wilson is about a lawyer who is considered a “puddinhead” by the locals because he fingerprints everyone in town, before fingerprinting is well-known. He clears someone of a murder and proves who the real murderer is.

    In “Yankee,” a man who is transported back to the 6th century is captured, then uses modern technology to not only win his freedom, but also becomes the right-hand man of King Arthur. He installs much modern technology and even “base-ball” (as baseball was spelled in the 19th century), and has a daughter called “Hello-Central” (as one would speak to a telephone operator at the end of the 19th century). Things go well until the Catholic church finds out and wipes out all modern knowledge.
