About Sean Bugg

  • I’m the co-publisher of Metro Weekly, Washington, DC’s biggest and best gay and lesbian publication. Over the course of my 40-something years, I've been a good little golden boy, a sub-Ivy-League college grad, an annoying activist, a very active party boy, a humorist and a journalist -- if those last two have any distinction. In addition to the magazine, I’m a freelance writer, car reviewer, book addict, gamer, amateur tennis player and reasonably successful husband. I have my hands full.

I'll never lose my love of the feeling of a big, heavy book lying on my chest to kick off a nap -- the Kindle is way too lightweight for that. But I have to say that, despite my love for the page, I'm really finding the Kindle to be a great replacement for 1) genre novels and paperbacks that I often by on impulse and don't get read immediately because I'm embarrassed to take them out in public, 2) big, honking books of history and politics, such as Nixonland, which I'm loving but would have finished long ago if I were reading it anywhere but in bed every night before sleep, and 3) a combo of those two, big political books that I would be embarrassed to be seen reading in public.

On a Kindle, everyone is reading War and Peace.

While I haven't tried Kindle, I still love the smell, touch and look of a book. But I think resistance is futile in this case, as even good 'ol Dungeons and Dragons accessories are now going electronic.

I just got mine for my birthday, it great, I carry it everywhere, the bad reviews are unfounded!

I recommend 'Hello Vodka it's me Chelsea" for light reading and 'Swan Peak" for more invloved fiction
