The Case for Books by Robert Darnton
Whenever people say that books are dying out, I want to give them a good smack up the head. As Robert Darnton points out in The Case for Books, more and more books are being published every year. The digital reader poses very little threat. Still, it’s not like you can dismiss the digitization of books. And that’s why I picked up The Case for Books–I wanted to hear about the topic from a gentleman who is assuredly on my bibliophilic side.
