Oh go on then

For fans of the idea that e-Book Readers will never catch on, here's a little bit in the Guardian that includes a list of features that a book provides and that an electronic reading device should therefore match. It is, of course, a list of requirements that no device in the foreseeable span of future human achievement will ever attain. Probably the only reason that I like it is that he left off '15) has to smell as good or better than a paper book'. To me, that's such a big concession that I can almost accept '3) It will be able to survive... falling completely into two or more pieces, while still remaining perfectly readable afterwards'.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
