    In a real store, you can pick up the book and glance through it to see if it is what you want.

    Hear, hear, a man after my heart. I too like to feel the heft of a book.

    Remember how reading the comics in a real paper felt? We’re all here for the convenience but the paper was better.

    @Harryfan Did you ever read Friday by Heinlein and how they had terminals and some real books. One of my favourites.

    I’m here because my paper doesn’t carry this strip.

    I love walking around the classic non-chain mom &l pop bookstores where you can ask questions and people know the answers. I was once at a chain store similar to Buns and Noodles and told someone I was looking for a certain book by Maya Angelou. The apathetic clerk asked me "oh isn’t HE one of the chefs on the Foot Network?

    I was dumbfounded!

    Our last non-chain book store went away a couple of years ago; they couldn’t compete with the big boxes and innerwebs. They didn’t often have what I wanted, but they could order to without any trouble at all. And they carried Charles de Lint’s books!

    I think a lot of us are here because there are more than a hundred comic strips here, whereas the local paper carries, I think, 12. Also, you have to admit, it’s kind of fun to comment on them.

    As with radio, which they felt sure TV would kill, there will always be at least a niche for paper books. They do have a certain je ne sais quoi.

    I have to admit that I rarely go into a bookstore. I go to the library or check the internet when I’m buying to save money.

    I prefer a bookstore that has a resident cat.

    And would eliminate a career choice for you as well

    And if the book is what you want, you can take it home right away instead of waiting a week or paying for expedited shipping.

    Me too. Not only this strip, but many others.

    Try and read an “electronic book” in bright sunlight ! Go on, try !
    .
    Even the professional sports leagues have hoods over their referees’ monitors so the monitors can be seen. (By lizards sometimes too.)
    .
    I, for one, am not going out on my balcony with a cold beer, a good book, and a hood to shield me from the sun so I can read the book; it sort of defeats the purpose.

    Agreed, with all these free ipads running around it’s really hard to figure out why I don’t have one.
