KindleI don’t think I can do it.

I’ve heard of the Kindle since Amazon debuted it in the fall of 2007, and I know of comparable electronic book readers, such as this one by Sony, but I don’t think they are for me.

I prefer holding a book in my hand and flipping pages. Tactile books. Feeling the age of the page. Smelling old ink.

But who am I kidding?

I prefer reading newspapers and magazines online than on print, so will books be next in my phase of shifting to an electronic medium?

I hope not.

Reading about the Kindle 2.0 hitting shelves this week, I hope it stays away from me. Far away.
