New York Times – E-book article

20 Oct

Check out this article that featured in the New York Times, http://roomfordebate.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/10/14/does-the-brain-like-e-books/

In particular I enjoyed David Gelernter’s opinion. The suggestion that ebooks aren’t designed to replace the book, just merely enhance it, is one I can go along with.

I have mentioned several times my dislike for the e-book; I should say, my dislike for the idea of where ebooks could take us. The more I read, the more I am coming round to the idea that this technology could be a good thing.  However, I still maintain, nothing beats the smell and feel of a  good book. Or is that just me?
