What Would He Think of Kindle?

In Josephine Tey's THE DAUGHTER OF TIME, Inspector Alan Grant, grumpy because he is confined to a hospital bed with a broken leg, says this:

"There are far too many people born into the world, and far too many words written. Millions and millions of them pouring from the presses every minute. It's a horrible thought."

Oh, Alan Grant! What would you (and Tey) think of Kindle and Nook and blogs and the entire virtual world of words?

I'm guessing he would say it was EXTREMELY horrible. :)
