I'm finding this very true with my own reading (now that I've a Kindle). spot on (from article):
"There is a disproportionate magic in the way black marks on white paper — or their pixilated facsimiles — stir us into reverie and revise our consciousness. Still, we require proof that it has happened. And that proof is what the books on my shelves continue to offer."
Interesting and beautifully put thoughts on physical books vs. e-books from VERLYN KLINKENBORG in the New York Times. Here's part of what she writes:
"I realize that the physical books are serving a new purpose — as constant reminders of what I’ve read."
