E-bookworms on hold November 13, 2009

Posted by kewroad in iphone, new media.

Looking at Billy’s entry from yesterday about reading world literature on the iPhone we had a look at the German situation again and found that regarding e-books it’s the same with all new technology or media like the fax machine, internet, CDs, digital cameras: nobody wants to change old costumes naturally, but cannot hold off the development. As usual Germany is far behind other countries regarding changes.

A popular German literary critic finds reading books on an iPhone is a contradiction: People with an iPhone don’t read anymore. They are just playing around. Personally I doubt that there will be e-bookworms in the near future. Reading a book to me means slouching about on the sofa with a blanket, having some music, a candle light and letting the pages of the book be the only contact to real life for a while.
