Stephen Colbert sure has a way of making authors open up about how much they hate e-books. In 2010, Sherman Alexie went on the Colbert Report to promote his book War Dances. He spent most of his time railing against e-books, first about the privacy implications of somebody having a record of your reading habits, then about the death of independent bookstores and finally about piracy. His nightmare scenario? What happened to the music industry. “Nobody makes money off their music anymore,” he said. “I’d be really worried if I were Stephen King or James Patterson.” Stephen’s advice: Limit your books to 140 characters long.
