I’m very pleased with each advancing year.  It stems back to when I was forty.  I was a bit upset about reaching that milestone, but an older friend consoled me.  ‘Don’t complain about growing old – many, many people do not have that privilege.

When media is too locked down, too rigid, when it’s too much like a room with most of the air sucked out of it, stale and exhausting, the exploration stops.  And for the intersection of books and digital there’s still much exploration to be had.
Where will those explorations happen?  I don’t know.  But I do know that print has endured and continues to endure for good reason.  Our relationships to our most meaningful books are long and textured.  And until we can trust our digital reading platforms, until the value propositions of digital are made clearer, until the notes and data we produce within them is more accessible and malleable, physical books will remain at the core of our working libraries for a long time coming.

To return to a book is to return not just to the text but also to a past self.  We are embedded in our libraries.  To reread is to remember who we once were, which can be equal parts scary and intoxicating.
