articles about e-books and a drinking game

Awesome article I came across on the Quill and Quire blog about an awesome post on Bookavore: basically the premise is to make a drinking game out of articles reviewing electronic books. Check out the link for full details/rules-some of my favourites include:
  • Reminder that some people read in the bathtub or on the beach and assertion that e-readers/physical books are superior in this regard — two drinks
  • “smell of a real book” — clean out the liquor cabinet, drink until you pass out, wake up next morning, puke, then continue drinking
Another one I would like to add would be:
  • "easy on the eyes" For example: "uses eink, which is easy on the eyes — not at all like reading on a computer screen" (from the Toronto Star) - one drink (tequila shot if possible)
He he, I don't have anything against e-readers-they seem kind of neat-but I am definitely tired of reading what seems like the same reviews over and over!
