    She’s a Trump clone.

    I’m sure that Danae would enjoy the Twitterverse Library.

    Library? Do they still have those?

    Man, I would love to be able to stretch out on the back of my recliner and read… my cat certainly seems to enjoy it up there!

    You can’t learn squat through tweets. Sadly the internet has taken much of the free time people once spent with books. Folks are missing out on so much!

    Didn’t I just comment on this elsewhere ?…..reducing our brains to a nit’s wit. Did TV do that to US, or twitter ?

    When Kindle and all that ilk became popular, people predicted books and libraries would eventually become obsolete. Well, how long have we had all those so-called nifty portable devices and how many libraries have closed? There’s benefits in being able to take one, small, light object on vacation, but, ultimately, the physical book, created from hardboard, paper, ink, glue and linen thread, will never be obsolete! (And libraries simply expanded their benefits to include audio books, on-line abilities for all sorts of things, movies and TV shows, etc.)

    It’s “140 or FEWER letters”; better still “no more than 140 letters.”

    I think Danae would enjoy flash fiction. She could get an entire story that’s anywhere between 100 and 1000 words long (depending on how you define the term).

    Some people daily create entire alternate realities in 140 words.

    A classic (very) short story by Isaac Asimov was titled “Sign at the End of the Universe”. It read, “This Side Up”, printed upside-down.

    I think her problem is that she hasn’t found the right book yet. When she finds a story that she likes, then she’ll enjoy reading. After all if you like candy over vegetables which will you eat more of?

    She should start out with something simple, easy to read, but classic, like Moby Dick or Pride and Prejudice.

    Yes, Danae, time to zip your lip and read your book.

    My childhood was without TV, but we had books, and I would walk a mile to a library for more. Later, the mental worlds they created were supplemented by TV images and the occasional movie. All these years later, nothing has been lost except perhaps time. I consider Non Sequitur a fine investment of of it. Today, it contains just about 60 words – pretty “wordy” for a comic strip – yet still has power.

    Not sure why I think I can add to this comment marathon. My reaction wasn’t a trumpism, but the sad thought that far too many people fall into the same category. They no longer read, no longer discuss, and may in fact, no longer think critically.

    I don’t understand people who don’t like to read. It’s one of my joys. It’s a great way to escape and far healthier than drugs or alcohol.

    Show me someone who says “it’s about the journey, not the destination” and I’ll show you someone with a five-minute commute.

    There is nothing like losing oneself in a good book.

    I thought it was 280 characters now. And I don’t tweet – my cell phone is so old it’s got a rotary dial….

    The journey can be interesting, but the destination is where I want to go.

    Functionally Illiterate. Short attention span. No understanding of history. A perfect Progressive UI.

    Reading at home became a lot more enjoyable when I finished school because there weren’t any curricula that focused on standardized tests involved with it.

    Even the BLOTUS SCROTUS can’t do it in only 140 characters, sometimes . . . .

    . . . . . and his tweets are even funnier if you read the dots out as well!
