Pinoy Kasi : e-books

The column of Michael L. Tan on Pinoy Kasi in today's issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer is about e-books. He offered an insight, which i believe is music to our ears as librarians.

Maybe it’s my age, but I still enjoy books you can hold, turning the pages by hand. It’s really all conditioning and I suspect my kids will take on to the e-books more quickly. But I’m also certain there will still be bookstores and libraries (real libraries) for a long time to come because when you do read a good e-book, you end up wanting to get the real copy. There was one book on child development that I liked so much I ordered three “real” copies to give to friends.
