Hi Post Punk Psychologist, thank you for reading and for your thoughtful reply.
I definitely agree that Kindles are more practical, and many of their benefits are greatly useful. I also love the dictionary and the backlight.
My arguments in this article won’t really stand up to cold scientific reason, as I don’t really make any arguments! I guess what I am saying though is that the experience of reading a paper book is captivating in itself when combined with the content that you read.
I think the humbling response to this article is evidence enough that I am not alone in this sentiment, and that paper books have plenty of life left in them yet. But as you say, it is a personal thing.
