Printed, Unconventional

Jezebel Magazine sent me a copy of their Modern Luxury May 2014 issue (read the article here) and it’s becoming more “odd” for me to see printed material – I’m not sure when this mental shift occurred in my brain but it’s almost becoming novel and I do not believe I’m comfortable with it becoming novel, unusual, or unconventional.

Printed work is powerful and it’s ability to engage the tactile senses and even olfactory is important (remember the sweet, sweet smell of a new book?).

I read quite a bit and it’s still in physical format (I don’t use Apple iBooks nor will I ever own a Kindle) so I appreciate it greatly. Here’s a stack of new books that I’m reading right now:


I never want reading physical books to become obsolete – I can’t imagine it will ever get that way, right?
