In Which I Muse On A Gadget Study And Its Choice Of Test Material

Oh, what would Papa think, to be so used
As he was for this study of iPads
And Kindles verses paper books. Bemused,
I'd bet. Though I am sure that there are scads
Of writers who would be quite chuffed to learn
Their prose is "pleasant and engaging" yet
Not very difficult for dummies. Spurn
Ol' Hemingway I don't, but I would bet
I'd read a little faster were there stars
And aliens and spaceships in the place
Of something dull and literary, bars
And manly man crap. Give me outer space!
So many of us, forced to read him when
We were in school might sigh if asked again.
