    Stop bashing ereaders, people. How can you honestly be so against something that opens up reading to reluctant pre-teens, teens, and young adults? How can you be so against something that re-opens reading for older people who don't have the best eyesight and don't have access to Large Print books (they're SO expensive!). My MIL loves her ereader bc now that her eyesight is bad, she can adjust the font settings and STILL get to read! I like the feeling of paper pages, too, but seriously.

    Kind of makes those of us who read "old school" (paper) feel smug. This doesn't happen to us.

    Bad for the print book industry, and probably bad for makers of electronic book devices: fewer and fewer Americans are reading books. According to a new study from Pew Research: Seven-in-ten American adults (72%) have read a book within the past year, whether in whole or in part and in any format, according to a survey conducted in March and April. That figure has fallen from 79% who said in 2011 they had read a book in the previous year, but is statistically in line with polls since 2011.

    “I’m a rare book librarian. I get to touch books every single day. My colleague and I have a joke that we are Defenders of Wonder. A physical book assigns a sense of reverence to the content inside. It’s the same feeling you get when you look at a painting or hear a piece of music. And I think that’s something worth defending. And just like a book gives reverence to it’s content, I think the library gives reverence to books. The building itself is a masterpiece.
