Sad to See Borders Go
A physical, solid book, is tangible, real, transferable - if I want to give it to someone else to read, I legally can. I don't have to "turn it to off" during take offs and landings - and in fact, I Blatantly read it during air plane taxi, take off, and landing, getting several chapters in during this otherwise wasted time. I am not "anti iBook" or "anti Kindle" ... I am definitely pro "Nooky" =) (Nook-e?)...I just enjoy the feel of a real book in my hands, and the inability of an airline militant to prevent me from reading it while their aircraft laboriously lumbers towards the end of the runway.
The Stokes Bird book helped me to identify the family of Towhees who have built a nest in one of my pool adjacent palm trees - AND it has a bird call CD in the inside cover. (more on that later)
