A Book In Hand is Worth...Two on The Screen?


I love books. And newspapers. And magazines. And cereal boxes. Well, maybe not cereal boxes – I’m more of a toast and tea person at breakfast time. (Or better yet, croissants et cafĂ© au lait, en France…but that’s another story). 

Still, I love to read, and I read voraciously, and yes, I do enjoy the feel of a book, and the smell of the ink (volatile organic compounds, anyone?), and the physical act of turning pages as I make my way through an article, book, or technical paper. 

But there’s more to the appeal of printed media than simply the physical experience.
