    One simple answer: “Payment is in dollars per page.”

    Tweets and novels are at opposite ends of the written language spectrum.

    I have read long books I really enjoyed and got lost in. I have read others written so badly I either put down forever or read to the end out of contempt of the writers’ style and lack of skill, just to get the book off my do list.
    Than there are technical manuals…..

    Technical manuals are an art form in themselves.
    .
    I liked long books like Sword of Shannara. Others like “Great Expectations” were mostly consumed with petty details not germane to the story, but were instead social commentaries. Useful to get an idea of early 1800s life, but not of much interest to high school students having to read it.
    .
    Writing them is a little tougher. Reason why the first two volumes of National Wave of Foolishness took 3 years and were more than 600,000 words total was the literal reams of material concerning dumb things done since 1960 in terms of culture, government, religion, science, military, business, and other facets of our country. I’ve got most of the third volume finished, but law is a really dry subject and I’m getting burned out putting this stuff down on paper.

    I like how a comedian on a radio show put it – I can’t read that, it’s like 10,000 tweets!

    Unfortunately in most libraries today, the librarians are just as chatty as anyone else. People use their cell phones all the time as if it’s some sort of coffee house. Gone are the days when it was a place for quiet and reading.

    I’ve got a collection of older flea market books. The descriptive style of the days pre-instant communication is wonderful, in-depth and flavorful.

    My thoughts exactly. Why don’t you just go to you r bedroom and lock the door.

    I hadn’t been to our local library for some time. When did finally go they had a soda machine in it! I was raised with the idea of never bringing food or liquid into the library. Gum was as far as it went.

    Back in the early 1960’s in high school I had to read a book (maybe 2 books) where miss Havasham was a bitter old woman who had a daughter(?) named Estelle. There was also Heathcliff and Cathy. There was also an orphan who asked “please, sir, may I have some more?” I hated those books.
    Now when it comes to tech manuals, I like tech manuals.

    No higher praise than that for a cartoonist. Thank you!
