Thanks For Books

The one thing about Kindle & Sony’s Nook Reader is that, well, you don’t get to hold a paper book anymore. The great thing, though, is that you can carry thousands of books without hurting yourself now, which I guess is good. I recommend lifting with your knees.

I came across a commentary at Entertainment Weekly concerning the beauty of the literal printed page on literal paper with literal coffee stains on the literal cover — all missing elements with a digital book. Even better (yet still kinda strange) is the accompanying video, seen below:

From the article:

Try doing that with a Kindle! Electronic readers may be popular, and they may even shrink my cumbersome wallful of literary treasures into a single portable hand-held device. But the book remains a pretty efficient content-delivery system that’s served us well for at least four centuries.

I wonder if librarians are worried?

About radamdavidson

When I'm not blogging, I'm hanging out with my family, pastoring a church, or listening to vinyl. I think and write about Jesus, music, communication, organizational leadership, family whatnot, and cultural artifacts from the 1980's -- mostly vintage boomboxes. You can read my blog at www.radamdavidson.com, watch [RadCast], a daily 3 minute video devotional, or find me on socials (@radamdavidson). I also help Pastors in their preaching and public speaking (www.CoachMyPreaching.com).
