Only thought on this cat...
I've no real idea who Nick Hornby is, nor do I really care much. However, I just had to say that anyone who blogs and uses a format that does not include any kind of feedback (heck, at least post up some of the emails you get, but not an option with this guy evidently) is not bloging. That person is pontificating, pure and simple. That alone makes him suspect. I mean, who the heck is he trying to convince?
Either that, or his title is more apt than it initially seems, and what it MEANS is "I'll never b caught reading an e-book because I ninja-read so no one will ever catch me!"
