I have nothing against electronic publishing, and as someone who reads a lot, those new technologies are really helpful as they provide the access to all kinds of contents, just by “clicking”, but there is nothing like the smell of paper (especially from old books whose “perfume” is unique –I´m a huge fan of handmade bookbinding ).
We often hear many “experts” claiming that newspapers, magazines, books, and all that currently “needs” paper will disappear very soon.
I´m sure that electronic publishing is “here to stay and to grow” (and it´s great), but the “two worlds” (paper and “no paper”) can live together in harmony…
But if paper is condemned? – It will be a tremendous loss for future generations, because reading also smells
