Focusing on the Pleasure of the Words Themselves

E-books Can’t Burn by Tim Parks [Detail]

Tim Parks, in E-books Can’t Burn, for The New York Review of Books, musing on the reading experience on screen compared to that of the bound book:

It is as if one had been freed from everything extraneous and distracting surrounding the text to focus on the pleasure of the words themselves. In this sense the passage from paper to e-book is not unlike the moment when we passed from illustrated children’s books to the adult version of the page that is only text. This is a medium for grown-ups.

Insightful, brilliant piece.
