It's the whole 'whose fault is it' I find difficult. I bought a book the other week on a subject I considered myself fairly well-versed in. I found the writing completely incomprehensive- and worse, made the subject boring! So I tried and tried to plough on, thinking- am I just dimmer than I thought? But after 4/5 chapters I decided, maybe I am dim - but maybe this guy just cannot write.
Digital age is good for book sales though. My current book is by a writer I never would have known about if I hadn't read his LA Times column on my Kindle weekly.


Terrific, yay, thanks for the allowance not to finish books and yet still qualify as intellectual and all that; but enough about books, yadda yadda yadda -- what does Marbury think about this whole WikiLeaks/Cablegate/Julian Assange/is-he-or-isn't he-being-set-up imbroglio??

I have low interest in the Wikileaks story generally for some reason. On the 'set-up' theory, the truth is nobody knows although using Ockham's Razor suggests not, and that generally - as Scott Adams says - it's a brave man who has casual sex in Sweden http://bit.ly/huwsWd


The Crime was buying it, the Punishment reading it.
