Try Again 

I don't mean to be critical but I see that Michel Tremblay's autobiographical Un ange cornu avec des ailes de tôle is called in English Birth of a Bookworm. Of course the book is a view of childhood through an early fascination with books, but "birth of a bookworm" is a mediocre effort. "Bookworm" is such a boring, easy term, and the young Tremblay was, by this account, nothing short of enraptured by his successive discoveries.

Watching TV is a good way to tear yourself away from the computer.
