More about books, and bookstores….

Watching the tvo documentary about the NY Review of Books (The 50 year Argument)…. so many writers to follow up with, and the blog link below.

It’s not irrelevant to the topic that when I went searching for an image, and entered the word “browse”, thinking of bookstores, I got images of computers.

The Lost Pleasure of Browsing  by Charles Rosen. My favourite observation: despite the convenience of online purchasing, physically, “the individual book should seduce and inspire you to buy it.” For that to happen, you have to touch it, and open it first.
