The call is coming from inside the house…

We recently got the giggles watching these old cell phone commercials. I think this one may be my favorite:

In addition to pondering how a phone of that size was ever considered “portable,” I also thought about a couple book-related tidbits I’ve recently heard about cell phones. The idea of reading novels on your cell phone, which was popular in Japan even before phones became smart, was always incredible to me. And then I read that Lauren Oliver wrote all of Before I Fall ON HER BLACKBERRY. This astounds me and also makes my thumbs and eyes hurt.

So now that phones have morphed into pocket-size as opposed to brick-size, do you do any reading or writing on yours? Or do you prefer full-size paper, screen, or ye olde booke?

(P.S. For those who recognize the title of this post…here you go.)
