Books are no more threatened by Kindle than stairs by elevators.
Life without a Kindle is like life without a library nearby.
Those aren't books. You can’t hold a computer in your hand like you can a book. A computer does not smell. There are two perfumes to a book. If a book is new, it smells great. If a book is old, it smells even better. It smells like ancient Egypt. A book has got to smell. You have to hold it in your hands and pray to it. You put it in your pocket and you walk with it. And it stays with you forever. But the computer doesn't do that for you. I’m sorry.
It seems to me that anyone whose library consists of a Kindle lying on a table is some sort of bloodless nerd.
Lovers of print are simply confusing the plate for the food.
