BOOKS cause stampede? No, wait; that was iBooks


I did a literal double-take when I misread the first headline I saw on the Great Richmond iBook Stampede of 2005.

I thought it said that BOOKS had caused a stampede.

Imagine a world in which books are such precious objects that people risk their lives and threaten bodily harm to others just to get their hands on one.

Nah, I can't imagine that world, and I've tried.

Thanks to Waveflux for keeping me up to date on these important current events.

(I've been neglecting my little blog due to my beginning-of-school-year duties. Hard to see it that way...I just finished the school year last week. And no one, so far, is stampeding our bookstore.)

Well, of course you thought that. :-D

I did my own double take when I read "beginning of school year duties." I guess you just finished the summer semester, eh?
