I agree and disagree, Clinton. I do agree that books do have a certain magic to them and can be really special and above other forms of media. However, there are plenty of books out there that are no better than clickbait. There are plenty of books that are saturated with the soul of the author who spent years writing it…and then there’s 50 Shades of Grey.
A good book has the power to be better than the best blog post. But just because something’s been printed in book form doesn’t automatically give it special legitimacy.
