Colleague: You know what no one talks about when they talk about e-books replacing print books? Donations. Libraries won’t get donations anymore if no one is buying print!

"I love writing" I say, grinding my teeth and breaking my pencil in half.

"Writing keeps me sane" I say, laughing like a maniac and spinning my head around 360 degrees while climbing up the wall.
