“Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.” ~ Harry Truman
There is no doubt that digital publishing has changed the publishing world. But I was a hold out.
Entering into a meeting with a consulting group, one of the men offered to help me with my bag while I grabbed a few things to carry to our meeting room. When I handed him the bag, he immediately reacted to how heavy it was.
He wondered aloud why my bag was so heavy. I told him it was because in addition to my laptop and various pens and notebooks, I usually carry around several books that I am working through.
Without any hesitation he stated rather bluntly, “Why don’t you just get a Kindle?”
A little taken aback by his directness and that he clearly expected an answer, I blurted out something about preferring paper books.
