The Reading Experience: Paper vs. Ebook

This is a really interesting documentary on print books, their place in society, and what e-books mean for the reading experience. I’ll be the first to admit that the convenience of buying books instantly is a nice benefit to owning an e-book, but no matter how much I like my Nook, e-books can’t take the place of print. It’s the experience—holding the pages, smelling the paper and ink…

Ahem. Before I go into some sort of dreamy fantasy involving lots of free time and lots of books, I’ll just say that the video is worth a watch. The booksellers and others featured really get across the importance of print.

Also, while were on the topic of bookish videos, check out this awesome mashup of Lady Gaga and Harry Potter. (Thanks, Kaley for pointing it out!)
