“You scroll and swipe and click your way through your life, scanning screens for information and interruption, screens that force you into a want of rapidity. Why you’d welcome another screen in your life, another enticement to rapidity and diversion, is a question you might ask yourself.”
Every now and then, I tell myself that I should buy fewer books, and more ebooks. My Kindle currently has about 100 unread books on it, most books that I know I’ll only want to read once. But when there’s a book I want, I first think of buying the physical book, before checking to see if it’s cheap enough in its Kindle version to buy the inferior edition.
