E-reading is Here to Stay

Kindle tops pb sales

I welcome the ability to carry thousands of books wherever I go--to have Ulysses with me at all times of day, to be able to consult Wordsworth, Keats, Donne, Herrick, Vaughn, Crashaw, and countless others in ways that I would never have thought possible a few years ago.

Even so, I love the real book as well--the paper and the ink and the binding and the smell.  But, on a trip to Dublin, given a choice between the two, it's hand's down my thousands in an e-reader.
