We’ve taken one more step toward the brink. I saw today some new Cliff’s Notes. Already the choice of people who would rather regurgitate pat answers rather than read and think they have gone one step further. Now you can get the Cliff’s Notes packaged with a copy of the movie. Yes, now you can just watch the movie rather than doing the reading and get your pre-digested analysis of the book without the inconvenience of having to go to two different sections in Barnes and Noble.
It’s a small comfort to me that the kids doing this will at least see a decent movie for most of these.
