I don’t have a kindle but I feel pretty confident saying I wouldn’t enjoy Finnegan’s Wake too much on a kindle – probably not from a computer screen either.
The book. Would have to be the printed book. Kerouac’s Dharma Bums too. Gotta be a real book. Stuff that doesn’t necessarily move you along so fast. Stuff you can chew on.
Slip a pen or lighter between pages, go do something; come back to it, chew a little more; that’s the stuff I really like most. So what one likes I suppose one will aspire to? Of course it’s a lot of poetry in those books too.
Poetry’s good for chewing. Yeah now we’re getting somewhere. Chewable. Is it chewable? Can you chew on it a long time? Or maybe not chewable but rich. Melts but sticks. Stuff that probably ain’t kindle-friendly.
But I don’t know. I don’t have a kindle. Unless I’m mistaken, kindle came along to facilitate readers of erotic romance, or the kind of work designed to keep a reader turning the pages instead of chewing on little pieces. ???
