Last night on The Colbert Report with author Ann Patchett debating bricks & mortar book stores vs. buying online:

Colbert: “One of the rare times that I read books is to escape, so I don’t have to talk to people.”

Patchett: “Right. But, if you never, ever talk to people, and you meet all of your needs on the Internet, you wake up one day and you are the Unabomber.”


“I do things like get in a taxi and say, “The library, and step on it.”
