I want to start by saying I LOVE TECHNOLOGY (until it doesn’t work, then I don’t). I have and ipod (which I listen to audio books on), a laptop (where I incessantly read blogs), a tablet computer (with the Kindle app), not to mention an iPad (provided by my school to do MCLASS assessments). I love the idea of being able to carry around a whole library on a device! (Maybe I would feel differently if I had a smartphone…)
There is something wonderful about sitting down with a book (or laying down, I am a librocubicularist: one who loves to read in bed). I love the smell of books. I love the feel of books. And, there is something oddly satisfying about turning the pages! I love books.
