Richard Cohen weighs in on the decline of books as the essential means of reading:

It's really tough being a book lover in a digitized world

But then there's this paragraph:

I never buy from Amazon unless I have to. I buy from actual bookstores. You go there and people are browsing or having coffee or staring into open laptops and pretending they're writers or something.

What!? You still find people in bookstores? Then what's the #v*%ing problem? I love books, too, but sometimes the medium is not the message. As long as reading remains vibrant, I don't care how it's being done.
