Heh, yeah, she probably could. I don't know what she thinks of the Reader, really, except that it's not suited to her needs, and she agrees the display is impressive.

I actually enjoyed it a great deal, I've re-read it a couple of times since, and expect to re-read it again in the future. Matter of taste, I s'pose -- I can't abide anything by Hemmingway, for instance, and others simply adore him.
