The semi-unfortunate fact of the matter is this: Often, books are more interesting than people.
I mean, personally, I'd often rather read about George Orwell's 1949 vision of what 1984 would be like than listen to someone talk about the funeral they attended this morning.
I sing about spooning at church functions.*
