Notable Quotable: Verlyn Klinkenborg on E-Reading

From the NYT:

Some Thoughts About E-Reading
Published: April 14, 2010

"In one way or another, I’ve been reading on a computer ever since it meant looking at green phosphor pixels against a black background. And I love the prospect of e-reading — the immediacy it offers, the increasing wealth of its resources. But I’m discovering, too, a hidden property in printed books, one of the reasons I will always prefer them. They do nothing."

Read the whole piece.

That's a great point- I can do more (at once) on my computer and on devices but if I have a book, well, that's all I have going on. I have to do that. Nothing is distracting me from it.
