This book ROCKS! Talking about e-books vs. print these days is like just into the middle of a Creationism vs. Evolution debate. The response range from the ridiculous, to the heated, to the sublime. Well, I’d like to add Lane Smith‘s It’s a Book to the sublime category in the e-book vs. print commentary. With three characters inspired from a fairy tale, and simple illustrations ( he used a computer for because he’s not opposed to tech), he manages to stir up so much humor that I simply has to read the book aloud to everyone in the house.
I have my feet wet in the e-Book pool. I am a NOOK owner, but in my opinion, there is no way Smith’s It’s a Book could translate in that medium. It is priceless. Read it and then buy a copy for all the doom and gloom-er who feel that print will disappear. I like my NOOK, but I’ve some beautiful books and I don’t see how they could ever be reduced to 1’s and 0’s.
I will forever be thankful to the friend who gave it to me.
