The Book as Medium

In March, unbeknownst to me, a family in my parents’ neighborhood got rid of all of their books because they’d purchased Kindles.

I was slightly disappointed that I hadn’t been there to take advantage of the situation — the neighbors have good taste, except when it comes to giving away all of their books, so I probably would have found amazing books through them — but I also felt sure that they were losing the pleasure of looking at books.

Nina Katchadourian, an artist whose works include Sorted Books, knows all about it. The photo above is from her series Shark Journals. Can you do this with a Kindle?
