The 'Kindle' story

'What do stories do? They create a connection between human beings, remind us that we are not alone and provide a path along which we can move forward. Whether the stories are told in paintings, pantomimes, written words or electronic words does not matter - only the story matters.

To prove this to me, my daughter is turned sideways in the chair on her second hour of reading a story, from my kindle.

My transition from a non-believer to a believer of electronic readers reminds me of the song written by Neil Diamond and sung by the ‘60s bubble-gum pop band, the Monkees: “I’m a Believer”, I couldn't leave her if I tried.”

Kindle - I couldn’t leave you if I tried - my daughter would come and get you.'

- Burt Prelutsky; 'A Few Words of Wisdom'
