The Superversive - Extruded Books: a cautionary tale

From Superversive. I liked the post but being in a semi-drugged haze what he said in the comments really had me laughing, it could to refer to so much these days.

He refers to the fall of Borders books -- "reminding me of what Silk said about Brill in The Belgariad after throwing him off a cliff:

‘What was that?’ Belgarath asked.

‘Brill,’ Silk replied blandly.

‘Again? What was he doing this time?’

‘Trying to fly, last time I saw him.’

The old man looked puzzled.

‘He wasn’t doing it very well,’ Silk added.

Belgarath shrugged. ‘Maybe it will come to him in time.’

. . . . From far below — terribly far below — there came a faint, muffled crash; then, after several seconds, another. ‘Does bouncing count?’ Silk asked.

‘Not really.’

‘Then I’d say he didn’t learn in time.’"
