Jonathan Franzen Signs a Kindle

Jonathan Franzen might be well known for hating eBooks, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t like his fans. Mr. Franzen gave a talk at a university the other night, and one student had the courage to bring his Kindle 2 to the autographing session afterwards. He reported that Mr. Franzen sighed before signing the Kindle.

It’s a pity we don’t know what was on the screen before hand; it sound like Mr. Franzen thought he might have signing away his soul.
