Just Let Them Read

In an article entitled What Really Kindles My Fire For Reading, Keir Graff makes this statement.
I have screen fatigue. I have gadget fatigue, too, and key, button, mouse, and scroll-wheel fatigue. When I open the covers of a book, my soul sighs in relief.
My soul sighs in relief. Amen to that.

Perhaps most enlightening thought in this article is the last sentence.
Let people read on paper, on screens; let them listen; let them have the words made into holograms and take virtual baths in them—just let them read.
I'll say it again--Amen.

It's a short article, but it packs a punch. Do stop by and check out What Really Kindles My Fire For Reading.
