Gutenberg Press, Then — E-Books, Now?

I first began seriously asking myself, "If and when will electronic books take over book-books?" when I bumped into the "Book v. Kindle" challenges (see August 10, 2009 post).  Funny though they are, the sketches made me think and say, "Right, this really isn't going to happen . . . at least, not in my time."

Enter stage right "How E-Books Will Change Reading and Writing," an NPR piece that makes you think about the E-Book notion when you stack it up against what the Gutenburg press did for reading and writing a gazillion years ago.

I get the ease of e-books, but I don't think they could ever replace actual books, not for a long time anyway.
