Pete Hamill on e-books

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Pete Hamill, who has never read an e-book himself, on his new book about immigration that will be published in digital form only:

It’s all personal taste. For me reading a book is what I like doing, curled up in a corner in a comfortable chair. But I don’t have any moral superiority. I don’t care, as long as people are reading.

After reading a half-dozen pro/con e-book articles and blog posts a day for months on end, that is by far the most reasonable response I've seen.
