In which I attempt to get a sense of what the hell is going on, and what's the right thing to do in a given situation, and which is up and which is down, and what does good, or even great, mean? And how do I approach these questions, both literary and quasi-literary? Well I ask you guys, duh.
So: Would you…..
1) Get a kid's kindle-type-e-reader-type thing for your kid*, if it were less than $100?
2) Abolish all reading log–associated activity, if you could?
3) Ban all aesthetically reprehensible books (think My Little Pony, Berenstain Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, Mary-Kate & Ashley mysteries [yes, they exist!]) from your kid's library and ultimately his/her brain, if such a thing were actually possible?
And, last but not least,
*Meaning, somewhat indestructible.
**Oh, I should have probably said, If you have answers to any of these, put them in the comments! Because I swear, that's what I meant.
