I work in what i like to think is a reasonably technological field of industry but have a great distrust of electronic books.
I see the benefits of your whole reading history on a single ipad but what to do with all those shelves you have put up.
On the throne i like to have a quick catch up on my reading and there aint no plug sockets in there.
Re the big purple book specifically i think it is actually good value and quality, did grow up forking out £50 quid ever few seconds as the latest codex was resleased then re released with an extra unit added.
Sure the book is a little rough around the edges now and has been through a few scrapes but similar to its owner i like to think it adds character.
