E-Books Are Easier

I used to collect books obsessively. Look how well-read I am! Look how my book shelves groan! Have you noticed the complete (well nearly complete) set of the collected works of Thomas de Quincey? But it's ages since I bought myself a printed book. Instead I finish one e-book, go clickety-click- and there's the next.

As a student I was told that a single glance at a person's bookcase would tell you when they gave up thinking. No longer true, is it? OK they might not be displaying anything with a publishing date later than- say- 2007, but that could just represent the year they went digital.
