The written word…

Along the lines to my letter related entry earlier this week (?), one of the writers for MSN.co.uk has an article about ebooks vs the real thing; http://tech.uk.msn.com/features/article.aspx?cp-documentid=7791455 It’s not a particularly controversial article, but it rings very true to me.  I love gadgets, computers etc (as I said in my recent entry) but Jane is quite right when she said nothing can beat a good paperback!  I shall perhaps have spend some quality time with my current paperback tonight in
