Peter Brett, not happy to simply bide his time on the daily commute with his Kindle
, set about intead writing his own, on his iPaq
smartphone. The trips between his home in Brooklyn and his work in Times Square were about 45 minutes, or, about 400 words each way. Over the course of two years, his 100,000 word novel took shape and is now in print, and apparently a bestseller in Poland and England. We've seen something similar in the past, but that 384-page
effort pales in comparison, and content aside, he should give himself a pat on the back and a big glossy sticker for effort. Here's hoping HP catches wind and ponies up a new set to replace his current and most likely fairly worn device.
