Who Needs Books ?

I hate to read 'books' on i-Pads.
I enjoy the feel of paper and the ability to take notes and draw in the books I purchase.
I like the look of shelves filled with books I've read and other shelves filled with books yet to be read.
I guess I'm Old school.

But this little prototype seems as though it will even make the i-Pad obsolete.

I'm with you John. I like my shelves of books. The reading technology is not up to providing the same experience. It's gee-whiz surface flash to me so far.

I read a lot in my spare time, but I invest for a living so sadly most of what I read is SEC filings. I read those on-screen. It works. But the last thing I need is to take reading for fun onto that squirrely little screen, complete with licensing disputes and platform shifts that could slash chunks out of my library five, ten, twenty-five years from now.

I agree, UBJ.

I'm so with you on books and bookshelves... until I travel. Nothing beats an ipad on a plane, in a hotel, on the train etc.
There is room for both... "kumbaya!"

I'm with Bro on this one! And also, books require care. They can get mold and fungus thAt can affect health. I used to read a lot! But I no longer have the time or inclination.

As. I've aged I prefer interaction on blogs and life experiences.
