You Can Take Us Anywhere

As a bibliophile who loves the act of reading but also the sensory experience of a book’s look, feel, and smell, I thought, “Why would anyone want to read a book on a screen?” Fifteen years later, with my once-perfect vision beginning its inevitable decline, the most powerful lure of digital reading is that the lighting is always right and I can zoom in if the font size is too small.

Of course, I was soaking in a bubble bath as I read the article “Are Books Obsolete?” (by Molly Marsh, May 2009), holding Sojourners in one hand and a crisp chardonnay in the other. I guess the printed word will always be my preference in that setting.
