Gift-Giving, Love of Books and More

by Patrick on June 2, 2009

There are a couple of really great things on the internet this fair Tuesday.  I wish I could link to them all, but you know, I’m not Google.

  • Edan has written a really lovely post at The Millions about giving books as gifts, reading in public and how both of these things might change in a world of ebooks:  “For many of us, books are cultural signifiers: if you like this, you will like that, and I will like you. A book serves as an aesthetic litmus test, a conversation starter, a way to understand one another through a third party.”
