Sony Reader Revolution Cam #4
The camera has been moved!
Less of chair back, more of bed!
There was also some strange action out front:
A guy on a ladder …
… talking on a cellphone …
… doing something with duct tape …
… and a level.
He served an actual purpose for this blog. He caught the street Reader Revolution cam in reflection:
At about 1:12PM, Farrow took a break and a lovely young woman sat in:
I didn’t time her, but she cracked in less than two minutes! Really!
A poor showing from the eBook-less unwashed general public!
What I’m not seeing at all today are any blue-shirted Reader Revolutionaries out there! It’s Saturday, for god’s sake, with thousands of people on the street! All there’s been is this guy:
Who logs the pages being read, sometimes chats up the public, and tries to recruit someone to read to give Farrow a break and save his sanity (will the guy crack?!).
He couldn’t recruit them, however!
At 1:56PM, a relief reader from the public named Tia came in:
They gave her a red Sony Reader to use!!
She sat like this for about twenty-five minutes. Oblivious to me yelling, “Move yer head! Woman, move yer noggin! I want a screensnap of the red Sony Reader, dammit!!!”
Finally, at the end, she did:
She not only read a short story, she got up to page fifteen of Before You Take That Pill, which she said she now has to buy! She thought the Sony Reader was — quoting — “awesome!”
Farrow got back in his perch:
I wonder how many pounds Farrow’s going to gain?
Chin up, Farrow. One day I’ll stop by to relieve you! And I’ll do a half-hour at least. Alert your wife. You can go have a fast and frenzied shag somewhere.
Meanwhile, out front …
… thousands of people and no Reader Revolutionaries to save their paper-book-sinning souls!!
