I agree. I have been pondering with the idea of getting my brother in law an e reader for some time because you can change font size and so on but he really prefers the paper feel so I have been putting it off. He is quite computer literate (he's 70) but just prefers e paper feel to the electronic.Originally Posted by singlestick
A mistake is simply another way of doing things.
It doesn't seem logical to me to try so hard to separate "generational issues" from "individual comfort zones." They seem pretty closely related to me. One very often arises out of the other.
I once was involved in an online discussion with someone who talked about the importance of books to a reading culture, and mentioned Dickens and Conan Doyle as examples. Of course, the works of Dickens and the Sherlock Holmes stories were originally released to the public via newspapers and magazines. The incorporation of these works into novels came later. This does not make the novels unimportant, but there is a larger context, and novels are just one way of transmitting stories. Ebooks fit very comfortably into this larger tradition.
