Well, she didn't figure on e-books, and she didn't figure that twitchy little screens would be everywhere by the end of the 20th century. Laptops, mobile phones, MP3 players, e-book readers like Amazon's Kindle, and now the DS make it possible, if not pleasurable, to read books in electronic format anywhere. Through the technology that Proulx was bagging back in the mid-nineties, it's now possible to carry an entire library in your pocket."
