“Reading Books on a Cell Phone is a Demented Idea”

February 18th, 2009

“…the students I talk to (and I ask regularly) would go to lengths to avoid reading a book on the Internet, can’t fathom the price of Kindle, which looks like an old person’s appliance anyway, and think reading books on a cell phone is a demented idea.”

— From a comment by Barbara Fister who “coordinate(s) the Folke Bernadotte Memorial Library’s instruction program and participate(s) in collection development, reference, and collegial management of the library’s resources,” posted in reference to an article about online piracy of university press publications.
