Anthony Daniels’ recent tribute to the printed book, posted at The New Criterion as the first of a series entitled “The Digital Challenge,” is the most rational essay on the subject that I’ve read this year.
Daniels mentions several points I haven’t seen in similar screeds about books and book-loving. He also aknowledges what is surely true: that reading is, for most book-lovers, an addiction that shares certain characteristics possessed by all other addictions.
As is often the case, the readers’ comments about Daniels’ humane and thoughtful essay are also worth a read.
