There are many things about the printed word I’ll never stop loving. The heft of a book, the paper’s rich smell, seeing them all lined up in rows on my shelves like old friends waiting to be revisited.
At the same time, I’ve had to reckon with the sheer weight of my collection during a few cross-country moves and I’ve had to lobby for space in the home to store them. And sometimes it’s hard to guess what I’ll be moved to pick up when I’m on the road so I must lug a few titles around. When my wife and I planned a trip to Russia I buckled. I bought a digital reading device and immediately loaded it up with about as many titles as my home library held so I wouldn’t be without books.
Whether you come to digital devices reluctantly like me or whether you’ve heartily embraced the technology, they make it a lot easier (and often a lot cheaper) to collect books. That’s one reason the Maxwell Institute wants to be more digitally minded. We just released of a batch of titles previously available only in print. At less than ten dollars a piece these digital editions will save you shelf space and money. Each is now available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and later this month they’ll be available through Apple iBooks.
Our forthcoming releases will appear simultaneously in printed and digital formats, and more books from our back catalog will be available digitally in the coming months, too.
Spread the (digital) word(s)!
