Chatting about books, authors, reading devices and the latest events happening around the cyber-world of book reviews.

He looks shocked. “You don’t want coffee?”
“I drink coffee sometimes, but Starbucks’ coffee tastes like burnt ass,” I say.
“Actually, it tastes nothing like burnt ass, Anna.”
Now it’s my turn to be shocked. “And how would you know what burnt ass tastes like?”
He laughs. “That’s for me to know...and you to find out.”
___________________“How do you know all of this?”
He pulls his Blackberry out, opens an app, and pushes the device across the table to me. It’s opened to the “White tea” entry in Wikipedia. I read a few lines, and realize he just quoted the article word-for-word to me. “You just copied Wikipedia! Even I know not to do that,” I say. “My professors tell us that all the time.”
“Your professors are idiots, Anna,” he says.
“So you weren’t just reciting this article word-for-word?"
“Who do you think wrote the article, Anna?”
Woah. This guy writes for the Internet!
___________________you have a philosophy of business?”
“No man is an island,” he says. “Islands are made of dirt and rocks and trees. I don’t know any people made of such things. Therefore, people are not islands.”
Wow. Was this hot guy a philosophy major in college?
