I've still got a massive set of EB on my shelves. I've been thinking for some time that I ought to get rid of them. I no longer consult them, and I need the shelf space. Still, they give such a solid look to a library.
I don't think books, as such, will ever disappear, but the codex as a publishing format is certainly going to be largely replaced by digital formats. That's a shame. I like books. I like the feel of a book in my hands. I like the ability to shuffle pages back and forth. I like to sit in a room surrounded by books. Books are a treasure.
Still, I feel like a dinosaur commenting on the latest cold snap.
