Tech time

Wow. It's been a week, and I haven't even mentioned e-readers or technology or the way the digital police are going to show up at our homes and demand our hardbacks. Did you know they're going to be selling Kindles at Best Buy soon?

Fortunately, others have kept up the good work:

Egan2 The School Library Journal writes about a New York panel debating the effects of e-books on kids.

Book-loving Jonah Lehrer of Wired confesses he's nervous about the rise of the e-reader and admits to a radical wish: that the devices be designed so as to make it harder, not easier, for us to read.

And novelist Jennifer Egan, author of A Visit from The Goon Squad - one of my favorite books of 2010 - reveals her reluctance to throw away her exceedingly beat-up day planner and adapt to the BlackBerry way of life in Salon.
