There’s no escaping it, apparently. Almost every day I see articles on the coming of e-books, and declarations they will replace the lovely bound books that I collect, read, annotate, store and dust occasionally.
Here’s a link to a recent article, “A Hundred Books in Your Pocket”, from the Wall Street Journal, January 21, 2006 by Terry Teachout. If that link doesn’t work please contact me if interested and I can send you a copy of the article.
He describes Sony’s Reader, a pocket sized e-book reader that makes use of E Ink and is slated to be on sale this spring. Apparently at least 3 major publishers are on board.
