Books v. eBooks: A Non-Argument
October 2, 2010 § Leave a comment
Too much time is wasted on the argument over books versus eBooks. Formatting has always changed. The fact that Shakespeare may have wrote with a quill and his plays were originally preserved in folios doesn’t much matter today. The only thing that mattered is the words that dripped off his pen — and the word’s impact on audiences, culture and the language.
What matters today is the same as the 1600s — whether the words will last. Any real writer will strive to have words that impact. The only real discussion about formatting should be about how to reach the widest possible audience for words that truly need a wide audience.
