Nathaniel Mathews (nathanielhm) | 2 comments In a world of Kindles and Nooks, is the book going to die off like the Commodore 64? Or is new-book-smell too satisfying, the feel of pages too primordial, to give up?

Kerry | 2 comments I should hope not, there's just something about the crispness of the paper as you turn one page to get to the next. I love trees and am for the preservation of them, but this is one issue I can't waver on. A book is meant to be held and embraced, technology is just colder and harder to love. Not to mention the effects of radiation these devices will leave with us with later on in life.
