Why I won’t read e-books

Why I won’t read e-books | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it

"I see the logic at work here. Not only that, I recognize it. I recognize myself in it. This article was written by someone who really loves books. Really. Someone who is sad to see them go, but ultimately someone who has been forced to admit that using an e-reader is more convenient than sticking to real books. I do not agree, but when I look at it from this perspective, I realize that I easily could. I know this same phenomenon has happened in other spheres (music, transportation etc.) and I have not even batted an eye. Old cars mean nothing to me. I actually like booking my own flights. I do not mourn the loss of the CD or the vinyl record. Cassette tapes were pretty cool (I am a child of the 80s after all) but no one misses rewinding. But now, for the first time this dynamic is touching something I love and care deeply about, and I am freaking out."
