The Guardian had a neat article which asked the question "What will become of the marginalia and forgotten mementoes" that are often stashed and scribbled into book if we ever became a fully electronic society.
Most of us BookFinder.com advocates are what I would call "serious bibliophiles" and for us I do not see this becoming an issue, we won't give up the printed word. But will future generations have the joy of things found in books? And what of inscriptions and signed books? These joys are not found in the writing but the physical object of the book itself, and that is something that electronic copy of a book can never have.
Or maybe we will just change the way we do things.
I read a story some time ago about David Sedaris being asked to sign an eReader at a book signing and at the time I thought it pretty ridiculous, Sedaris did end up signing the reader but somehow I feel that fan just has a defaced reader now.
Lastly I'm sorry that I have been the blog here, I'm going to try and make an effort to begin posting here again, I've been neglecting the blog a bit too long I think.
