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.
