“A Specific Object in a Specific Time and Place”

I think Jonathan Franzen may be a bit more ardent than I am about physical vs. e-books, but a lot of his sentiments are sentiments that I can relate to as someone who will always prefer a book to a Kindle.

When I read a book, I’m handling a specific object in a specific time and place. The fact that when I take the book off the shelf it still says the same thing – that’s reassuring.“ – Jonathan Franzen to The Telegraph
