If I looked like George Clooney, I might actually enjoy seeing myself read. I might even dress all fancy like. But as it is, I'd rather the monsters I read about be in the words, not on the screen.

That doesn't really help much, but the sweet smell of the sheep dung does keep people from commenting on the glare.

YMMV. Hope it helps!

Hmm. Well I've got an 18 year-old goat, a vat of lard and a mirror. I'll try your technique but I have a feeling I'll attract the authorities rather than reduce glare. But I'm here to learn!

But then, I'm not a very sensitive person. I don't have a good sense of smell, so skunks or out houses don't offend me. (I also can't smell most flowers unless I stick'em right up my nose) I don't have a good sense of taste either, so I don't enjoy the nuances of flavors of things. (don't really see any difference between instant coffee & brewed, or diet soda & full calorie) Usually have sort of dirty glasses on, so a smudge on a screen doesn't bother me on a monitor, and the glare is something that I quickly (like 3 minutes) quit noticing.
This was like reading the Book of Job as written by Eeyore.
