Pretty hefty read, for a blog post, but some really nice insight into Alexander’s reading style and the effect of the eBook and eReader. I picked up my Kindle a couple months ago. I haven’t used it as much as I thought, but I also have a good amount of physical books I’m still working through.
I imagine I’ll get a few more crossed off the list, while adding some to the Kindle, and then adding more when I get the iPad v2.
But a blend is what I’ll always have. Sometimes you can’t beat a good hardcover biography or classic that I’ll keep forever and pass down to my kids.
“But if I learned anything from all of this, it\’s my first, oldest lesson as a reader: There is always going to be a book that saves you. There is also a new lesson: You do not know how it will get to you.”
