don’t be afraid of the paper book!
March 10, 2012
Much of what we face, there are invisible and conditional border, where one edge action is possible, and the other categorically no. It’s all in our head — either a positive or a negative sense. Our attitude is compounded by the — one-sided education, which, after the Soviet Union back in a few generations will influence, if not to say «aukati»on our worldview, regardless of how we will feel free, democratic, not blinkered. We are categorically not only for others ‘ beliefs, thoughts and utterances, but also to themselves. We ourselves much prohibited, although could use certain fruits information.
Reading paper books is not associated with piracy, unlike e-books. No matter how honest neither was the reader, the attitude changed radically. This categorical sense affects the publishers and authors of books, just look at what intensity is saturated market of electronic content and abroad with us.
If you think that paper and electronic books are on two sides of the same border, the transition from one state to another is punishable own thoughts and doubts — as a crime. Most think that if you started to read in electronic form, then read in the paper anymore, but on the other hand faces a similar belief becomes even harder, and just when one thought about how it is impossible to betray the book»for electronic hardware.
There is not even a border confrontation, but the feeling that one carrier as if out of date, and the other too advanced again to sink to the level of the paper book. In this situation, the book loses one value, but does not restore it when switching to another carrier.
the Book itself is the value. There are no universal means for reading. Just the text can be read electronically, but who said that the same thing cannot be implemented using paper books? If you consider that it can be read one way, this reader will understand that in each case it is permissible to use different media and it is this fearlessness will increase the value of the book. At this point, should not pop up in my mind the question — «what was the book in question»? Just about the book. About the text with illustrations, worked for the author.
