Amazon sales pop as Kindle e-books overtake paperbacks – Jan. 27, 2011.

I don’t know whether I am excited about the ease and power to deliver information e-book readers represent or sad at the decline in physical book sales. I mean who doesn’t love the idea of being able to carry all their books around without a giant backpack (or for some of us, a large moving van). Or, to be able to buy or checkout books from the convenience of practically anywhere. Sounds good to me….BUT, there is just something about books! The luscious smell of a new book, the rich feel of the heavy paper, the subtle sound of the pages being turned….I love it! And I, for one, would be sad to see it go.
