But for people like me what are we to do ? There is nothing quite like a solid would bookshelf with physical volumes in it, that you can run your hands over, that you know where it lives, as in a country village with nary a street sign or number. The smell of a quality paper and ink. What to do ? Perhaps it's time for holographic bookshelves with haptic feedback and wireless link to one's iPad. One can then fairly delude oneself in drawing a real book from a shelf only to have it appear on the iPad which itself could appear to take on the form of the physical volume.

 

Of course such an illusion would cost a pretty penny itself .... but one can dream.

 

Thx

But you still wouldnt have the smell or the ability to put under a wonky table leg.

I still enjoy using my leather bound common worship when sorting services.

Place for both hard and soft copies.

Just need to make a rrasoned descision which is required. For me, additional study bibles are e docs now and only adding books for things that will never get into accordance like by svs orthodox and Kenneth bailey publications. Also anything i need to lend or that my wife is likely to use as she wont use accordance.

I think it's time to end this thread. Helen has stated how things are.

If you want the NOAB, start writing letters to the OUP.

Now that I know that I will not bump it, and I have written OUP only to hear back things like we are happy to talk to developers... I only bumped it to display there is still an interest. I also realize that if it is at a point where talks are no longer useful, it is time to stop flogging a dead horse. I thought it was just stuck at the back of the stable being stubborn about coming out and was not meaning to ask for the moon.
