A funny, well-written short story. I didn't quite buy the premise that: (a) all-encompassing digital media devices will destroy real-life social contact; and (b) once shorn of such devices, people will rush back to print books, but it was an entertaining (and free!) read. The novel from which this is taken looks interesting.

I could actually see some thing like this actually happening to our society in the future, sad thought really.
