Do you love books, or do you love reading?

The author of this article decided to read the same novel four ways: paperback, audiobook, Kindle and iPhone. The experiment “taught me a great deal about my reading habits, and about how a text reveals itself differently as the reading context changes,” she said. “Along the way, I also began to make some predictions about winners and losers in the evolution of books.” Perhaps her most dramatic prediction was that “the iPhone is a Kindle killer.” “Kindle, shmindle. It does almost nothing that an iPhone can’t do better — and most important, the iPhone is always with me. . . . Yes, the Kindle’s reasonable imitation of a book is an advantage, but not enough to outweigh the necessity to carry an extra object and its power plugs.”
