Lewis Grizzard Spinning In His Grave

I have a fancy smart phone, but I am not as fancy as our resident IT guru Granite (and if Granite is our tech guru here, that should say something) becuase I don’t have a eReader.  No, I don’t have a Nook, Kindle or even an iPad (though an iPad would be  very cool, but after paying for the data plan on my phone, it is hard to justify paying for another data plan on what amounts to a larger phone. 

I don’t like the idea of these things, becuase I like to have a book in my hands.  I like to feel the pages, bend the spine of the book.  I also like to share books when I am done, and when I get it back, I like to put the books on my shelf and try and impress people that come over so they can see a bookcase full of books.

If I did have one of those new fangled gadgets, you’d better believe that I WOULD NOT put Lewis Grizzard on there. 

I think it is great that Lewis is getting some love and a new generation of people can potentially find him.  But me personally, I would not want to download a book by a man who refused to let go of his typewriter.  It is not doing the man justice.  It is not how Lewis would have wanted it.

    Another cool thing that I heard is that Lewis recorded readings of a lot of his books before he passed and they’re going to start releasing books on tape with Lewis being the narrator.

    I listen to Lweis on my Ipod. Is that bad?

      No. I have “Best of Lewis Grizzard” on my iPod. If you do like I did and take a CD that was released when Lewis was living and transfer it on there, just to make driving safe so you don’t have to change CDs, then you are ok.

      If you download Lewis from iTunes, then you are getting in some murky water.

    There are stupid asshole kids now who never pick up an actual book.

    They need to know Lewis.

    This is a good thing.
