-Welcome to my library says the beast. Two storeys to be read at your leisure. All yours.
-No thanks. Belle shows him her Kindle, held to her chest like an over swaddled baby-binder. This is your whole library.
-Can you eat it? Smell it, touch it, lick it? Didn’t think so, says the beast. It is not a proper thing you can drop in a bath, crumple in your bag until it is dog-eared, use as a coaster -no, it’s a travesty. You cannot eat a Kindle, and that’s a fact.
