Generally, I’m a slave to technology, following trends and waxing poetic about iOS vs Android. But there’s one trend that I don’t think I could ever worship.
Digital books and eReaders.
Um, pass the real book, please. You know, the one that smells amazing and has pages I physically have to turn?
But unfortunately, my opinion is slowly becoming a minority one, evident by the recent news of U.S. bookstore Borders‘ demise. They just announced this week they were shutting down every remaining store.
There are so many ways technology makes our lives better, but I honestly don’t believe in this case that statement is true. And I’m desperately hoping Canadian bookstores can find a balance between sales physical books and e-books, that allows them to remain in business.
