The end of print media?

I am a Luddite when it comes to books.

The chance to browse around the Falmouth Bookstore when Annie and I go bimbling on a Saturday afternoon.

The weight of a good hardback novel.

The smell of new pages opening.

The tactile relationship with a good book when you are curled up on the sofa on a rainy afternoon, in front of an open fire.

Bookshelves at home overflowing with memories of your escape into other worlds and lives.

How could a plastic box replace all of that?

The new Kindle DX from Amazon will surely replace the magazine and newspaper – I get that.

But the book?

Surely not?
