So there was this story last week about Stanford University's "bookless" library.
This whole bookless argument has escalated since Amazon showed that ebooks kick regular books' asses when they deleted copies of 1984 remotely from a bunch of Kindles. Tell me the last time Mr. Houghton or Mr. Mifflin kicked in your front door to take back a paperback copy of Animal Farm...
But my guess is that since most people still read paper books, they aren't aware this battle even exists.
