I have a fancy smart phone, but I am not as fancy as our resident IT guru Granite (and if Granite is our tech guru here, that should say something) becuase I don’t have a eReader. No, I don’t have a Nook, Kindle or even an iPad (though an iPad would be very cool, but after paying for the data plan on my phone, it is hard to justify paying for another data plan on what amounts to a larger phone.
I don’t like the idea of these things, becuase I like to have a book in my hands. I like to feel the pages, bend the spine of the book. I also like to share books when I am done, and when I get it back, I like to put the books on my shelf and try and impress people that come over so they can see a bookcase full of books.
I think it is great that Lewis is getting some love and a new generation of people can potentially find him. But me personally, I would not want to download a book by a man who refused to let go of his typewriter. It is not doing the man justice. It is not how Lewis would have wanted it.
