All Booked Up?


In his review of Naomi Baron’s recent book Words Onscreen: The Fate of Reading in a Digital World, David Simpson suggests that Baron

makes compelling arguments that though digital reading devices have many advantages (convenience, open access, potential cost savings) they may be more suitable for skimming rather than reading in depth, for power browsing rather than reading and rereading in depth. (para. 5)

Do you agree?  Why or why not?  Are traditional printed books soon to be a thing of the past, or are they here forever?
