Some people still like it old school, showcasing that lovely hardback on a bookshelf or flipping the pages of that paperback in their hands (I admit I still do, even though my Kindle usually wins), but on the business side of publishing world, the print book might have put up a good fight.
As do I for those extra special books. I have my collection of old books dating back to the 1800s, nonfiction books I read and annotate for research, and fiction books that I read in various places on various readers: kindle, iPad, iPhone…I always have something with me that way.
