"Yes, I know, some people -- chiefly old ones -- say they just love the feel of a book, that these new-fangled computer thingamabobs will never be as satisfying. Bet me. The rising generations don't read, but they are happy not doing it on a portable screen. It's new world. Countless horrible books will see publication, but also good ones that New York wouldn't touch. Some means will evolve of sorting this mess out, maybe websites run by tasteful reviewers who will slog through the sludge, finding emeralds. It's going to be decentralized, free-lance, beyond the control of big companies." (08/28/11)
