The haptic and tactile feedback of a Kindle does not provide the same support for mental reconstruction of a story as a print pocket book does.

Pit Bulls Photographed As Lovely Fairy Tale Creatures

“I realized that the way pit bulls are portrayed, even by photographers trying to make a difference, is always very harsh. The imagery associated with pit bulls is gritty, somber, highly contrasted, very urban. People want to portray them like badasses.”
