    I’ve read about half the book and have enjoyed it a lot so far.

    I can’t imagine buying the Kindle version, I love the device, but a book of this nature with full colour illustrations and photos really should be read as a physical copy (in my opinion).

    I didn’t have any problems with the text layout Werner did.

    The book sounds cool. I’ll skip the iPad version for the print though.

    I’d be a regular visitor to Knotts if they still had the immersive Bear-y Tales that even surpassed many Disneyland rides. Many of his unused concepts would be great to liven up current and future soulless and dry disneyland hotels.

    I wonder when the “paradigm shift” will solidify, when books are designed primarily for devices and print is an awkward presentation…

    The Museum of the Weird would fit right in on the boardwalk these days — so ahead of its time. Or maybe we can open one in Portland; we’ve got that reputation.

    It sounds wonderful; I also would love to hold it in my paws.
