People who need to possess the physical copy of a book, not merely an electronic version, believe that the objects themselves are sacred. Some people may find this attitude baffling, arguing that books are merely objects that take up space. This is true, but so are Prague and your kids and the Sistine Chapel. Think it through, bozos.
The space they take up that’s important, though? That’s the space they get in my head. That’s where it really matters.
I mean, I have 170 books on my Kindle. And no need for another bookcase. I daresay that without the ebook option, that’s 100 authors that I wouldn’t have given money to. I thought this through, and no worries, I got it rock solid.
Sure hope Prague is okay, though! It can stay on my couch for a few days if it needs to, but it can’t become a long-term thinga
