22 Book v. Internet

I've been thinking about the differences between reading a book and my life online. I never fall asleep when I'm at my MacBook Pro checking Twitter or my news feeds, joining in the conversation. And I never leave an hour of reading in my leather chair agitated, on edge, overly wired. They're just different ways to use the mind, and I'm a citizen of both worlds.

For the record, I fell asleep too when reading Garcia Marquez. Wouldn't be the first case of a literary soporific...

Also, clearly you just need a more comfy chair for your computer desk. Once you're nice and slouched like me, you'll start nodding off just fine. ;)
