Best quote? "Books don't actually compete with the Internet or movies, and never did."

My only disagreement is on the "crap." Not that The Da Vinci Code wasn't crap, it was, and don't even try to argue otherwise. But I don't think one or even a few crap book leave a literary life in ruins. Now, a whole diet of the stuff, like fast food, will make you fat and stupid.
