Why I Still Buy Hardcopy Books.

When '1984' becomes, well, '1984', well, something's wrong.

I understand the need to delete this from Amazon's site, but deleting it from your Kindle without your knowledge? What else can they do?

That event was almost too serendipitous when it happened. I don't believe that Amazon ever effectively laid to rest concerns that they might do that again.

I have a Barnes and Noble Nook. The word is now going around that they will be abandoning the Nook to BetaMaxVille. I never buy books for it, but still I think that will mean that eventually I can't turn it on and read the free ones I have uploaded to it.

After getting rid of my dictionaries and compendiums of quotations, etc., I am now replacing them with hard copies. Because internet dictionaries are really lousy, and quotations cited on the net are wrong as often as not.
