BLOG POST: Limericks

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 into 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!
