Maybe what we really need to accommodate this convergence of all things digital is a return to the days of Shrinklets. Remember Shrinklets? This was a pretty hilarious book published some years ago that cut down to size seventy of the world's great books. Here's the shrinklet of Moby Dick:
Whale chomped Ahab's leg in two.
"Hunt that beast!" he tells his crew.
First, a welter of whaling schmoose,
Then comes Moby and hell breaks loose.
Smashup! Ahab's drowned in brine,
Lashed to the whale by a harpoon line.
Good (symbolic) with Evil vies,
If you'd fathom it, you must rise.
Look, maybe I'll never read War and Peace in any medium. The book has already defeated me on four previous attempts to get through it. Perhaps I should wait for the shrinklet.
