I happen to like the texting concept, for a few reasons, not the least of which is I don't have to hear the incessant chatter of teenagers when I'm trying to read or write.
But I must say I have yet to experience the text conversation that counts as an all time favorite reading adventure (though there have been some great one-liners).
Apparently there's a teenager in Wyoming who would disagree. Check out this article and then double check your own cell contract and coverage. It's not 'great' reading but it was certainly sparked an adventure for that family.
