I’d like to think that I’m not a luddite, but at the moment I seem to lack either of the 2012 equivalents of the mechanized loom – the iPad or the Kindle.
My wife has a Kindle. For novels, I think they work very well – it’s text, it’s linear, but I tried it out for technical books and I don’t think I’m so keen, because often I’m checking back on a previous page, or having to refer to a diagram or earlier chapter. In a book, I can just turn over a page and flip back.
For now, I think I’ll just have to build another shelf and keep with the paper.
