Down With Paper!

Friday, November 23, 2007


Last week, Amazon unveiled a new electronic book reader whose display incorporates digital ink technology and looks remarkably like paper. Michael McCreary of E-Ink Corporation hopes that consumers will finally give up the dead-tree version of books.

Few books there are worth reading, but the best must be read again and again. . . we just need a few words of the Best. . . "what old books tell, there is nothing more to be had, that is why old men are mad."

Excellent show. Many years ago, I helped get the LA Times book review off the ground. The fact that I was allowed to review books shocked my family, friends, and book lovers everywhere (espectially in Brentwood). When I attempted to use my "credits" to obtain assignments at the NY Times, I was not taken seriously.

After "thumbing" the on-line Sunday Times reviews, reading portions of The NY Review of Books and Book Forum, I am left wondering where I can find out about the thousands of publications that will never see shelf life at B&N. How about a program devoted to internet resources for the serious (sometimes) reader of hardcopy material not generally found on the internet or in the distribution loop? Thanks, OTM.
