but I do like to see these kinds of things.
"Either way, the book and the fly collided spectacularly (and isn't there something immensely satisfying about that little wooden "pock!" sound that flies make when you connect properly?). Now try doing that with an e-book. Or reading it in the bath. Or taking it to the beach. Or lending it to a friend. Or leaving it on a shelf so your friends can admire your so-called erudition."
Don't dismiss that last bit. A quick scan of the books laying around your potential mate's place can reveal rather a lot. A sterile plastic thingy, not so much.
