The End of Books

I am going to write about all this digital books and the end of the world as we know it kerfluffel later. We may very well be at the end of a glorious era. The Kindle, they say, is going to change everything.

If you're ready to jump into the future with both feet and save a some trees in the process, I invite you here:

Look Tom.
I know you're probably thinking, "We've cultivated quite the blog community and though our readers love and support our new son, EZ, they expect the continuation of our infinite wit and running pop culture commentary - as well as our corporate sponsorship and plug to purchase bonsai trees."

And that's fair enough because you're right. I think your blog is kickass. It's funny, it's touching, it's you and Karine (funny and touching).

But dammit anyway, I don't want to read posts about the Kindle, or E.B. White or "things you like" unless the thing you like is

Comon. Let's do this. Gimme some pictures for crying out loud.

I also know that your new identity as a Dad may be a shock in that you've reveled in your identity as a really good blogger.

How's about we combine these two identities: really good blogger and Dad and blog about the baby. THE BAY BEE.


I love you.
I love your blog.
I love your baby.

Tell Karine hi.

Karine and Tom said...


Thank you. Karine said yesterday that maybe we should put more pictures of the baby up. And I was all like, we will. But I gotta sell some Kindles. 'Cause we get like seventeen cents if someone follows the link from our site to Amazon.

We're not sure exactly what we're doing here. But I know that I enjoy writing and my mom says I'm good at it. So if we keep offering little nuggets of sunshine and insight everyday, eventually, someone is going to buy a bonsai tree. That's what I think.

In the meantime.

Your wish is our command.
