Over the years, I’ve gone back and forth over the merits of print versus digital books so many times, it’s as if I were in an abusive relationship with myself. But my mother’s passing and the sentimental value of her library have finally put an end to that debate in my head. It’s not that one is superior to the other. They each have their place in this modern world.
Such a wonderful and poignant essay. But this particular part stood out to me. I, too, read a mix of paper and digital books and each have their purpose, place, and advantages. There is no “better”, only “also”.
