As booksellers who love real books printed on paper the advent of e-books has not been a welcome development. And the Kindle in particular as it binds users in to a certain dominant online retailer. Here’s a couple of anti-Kindle limericks which I hope may cause a smile.
A spy novel lover called Jane
Found her Kindle it drove her insane
For the battery failed
as the spy was unveiled.
Now she’s back reading real books again!
A lass of a ‘certain age’
Stamped on her Kindle in rage.
For it wouldn’t display
‘Fifty Shades of Grey’
Now she’s back with the printed page!
