GoogleLitTrips Reading List's insight:

An advantage of paper-based books over digital books.

 

Though I have a moderate preference for digital books myself. I try to discourage the paper vs. digital argument as misguided on multiple fronts; particularly for educators who not only have their own preferences, but who are also responsible for not discouraging any "other preferences" that might be "the key" to engaging the reluctant reader.

 

I think there is much to say in favor of being able to "marinate in the visual feast" of paper books' presence in our daily meandering.

GoogleLitTrips Reading List's insight:

No real comment, just sort of cute.

 

But I can't help wondering whether the cartoon leans towards iPads because they don't consume trees or leans towards paper-based books without regard for tree consumption.

 

But, of course, technology also has it's questionable resource consumption as well.
