Re: OT: I wish Pocket would do something like this

But the question was "What's the point?" And that's based on the false and frankly rather bizarre premise that the only possible purpose of fiction is to catalog continuity, rather than to tell entertaining stories. It's getting the cause and effect backward. Continuity is a secondary consideration. It can enhance enjoyment; it is not more important than enjoyment. It is not "the point" in and of itself.
