Ray Bradbury’s Non Scents

Deborah Behrens of LAStageBlog visited Ray Bradbury at home and the Grand Master gave her quite a wonderful interview. He began with some pungent comments about the Kindle:

“It’s not a book!” exclaims Bradbury during a recent afternoon visit to his Los Angeles home. “It doesn’t smell! I’m writing a poem right now called There Are Two Smells in the World That Are Beautiful. A new book has a great smell. An old book smells even better. It smells like Egyptian dust. Internets don’t smell, you see. And so, to hell with them!”

I wouldn’t disagree with Ray. Just the same, there are a few blogs I hold my nose while reading.
