By which I don’t mean a case as in an argument, but a case as in a binding or container.
For reasons of no relevance here, I have just followed a trail of links that led me to an advert with this illustration:
I am bemused, to say the least, by the product, which is described as a “beautiful, handmade bookbindery case” that “provides rugged protection, while creating the feel of holding a traditional book in your hand.”
I’ve read a number of comments about how unnatural the whole physical activity of reading a traditional book is: how you have to hold the double page open – often when it seeems determined to close itself – though you can only read one page at a time. An e-reader is claimed to be more intuitive and natural as it only displays the area you are reading, and you don’t need to fight to stop it closing.
But here we have a case for an e-reader that creates “the feel of holding a traditional book”. Is it just me, or does this seem slightly illogical?
