    One thought on “Who Needs Books?: Reading in the Digital Age (CLC Kreisel Lecture Series)”

    2. In this 44 page essay Lynn Coady convincingly argues that books will not disappear anytime soon.It is an informed and interesting read." Books give us communion with the writer's mind.Immersion in imaginary worlds. Absorption in language. A book gives us sensual pleasures such as the smell and the texture of the pages between our fingers"

    3. Insightful essay that argues that books are technology and reading itself with not lose its place in the digital age.

    4. Books are disappearing in paper, yes, this is an essay with lots of blank spaces.I don't get it$11.00 in paper and $8 in ebook format.Seriously. Baffled. why was this put out on paper?

    5. Enjoyed this reassuring and well-written piece on the future of books and reading in our technology-driven society. Coady uses humour & historical bits which adds a lot to her subject.
