With Wallace Stegner's great novel much on my mind lately, I'll shortly be off to re-find, re-set, my "angle of repose" (otherwise known as a one-week vacation). Stegner's is one of the best literary (and most psychologically useful) metaphors I've ever encountered. A suitcase full of books, ocean scenery, and some full-bodied Italian red wine should help. The number of books is, as usual, out of control for this journey, leading one to wonder: At what poundage does the stubbornly loyal print-lover actually start thinking about a Kindle? See you soon.

I'm all for Kindle (or similar devices) because of convenience and also less "clutter".
