Well…actually…hmm…

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 love this! I go to read or write at S’bucks for just this reason. And to movie theaters. And to restaurants. I could live without any of these places, but the dialog in a public space is so much more zesty.
