I haven't succumbed to the technical gadgets for reading - yet. I know I have an old fashioned streak, but there is just no substitute in my mind for a book. This New York Times article reminded me I'm in the right place - San Francisco: "where the average annual per capita expenditure on books is perennially among the highest in the nation. Same goes for booze — according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, San Francisco is the only city that ranks in the top three for both (New York is ninth by both measures). Hence all the readings in bars."
