In yesterday’s WSJ, there was an article called No Threat Yet. The public library has an amazing amount of titles to choose from, and colleges are also moving in that direction.
Yet, here I sit having just ordered my books for the next semester and I couldn’t get either one as an ebook. One of those courses was library technology.
The more I use ebooks, I think that I like them for informational type books, but I like reading fiction in a book with pages I can flip. Also, while I’d like an electronic version of the Bible, there is something about flipping the pages of it too. I’m frequently distracted by something else that catches my eye. I imagine that would be true of any book I spent a lot of time in.
Here is a library tour that Wendy sent me. Very nice. Has real books too.
