@adamkotsko: How many e-book purchases are impulse buys? The Kindle has room for a lot of stuff you were never realistically going to read.
@emiliawrites: I dunno, 90%?
@adamkotsko: When I see the huge numbers e-books put up, I assume it HAS to be that. There can’t be a sudden upsurge in reading.
@emiliawrites: I think the upsurge is proportional to the *decrease* in reading
@adamkotsko: Just like the upsurge in huge mp3 collections might correspond to a decrease in concentrated attention to music?
@emiliawrites: Absolutely – the drive to accumulate without even use-value. And then finally boredom with even that.
