Julian Morrow (the host of ABC Radio National Summer Breakfast) is a convert to e-reading so he’s had quite a few segments on ebooks. He appears to be frustrated, like the rest of us, at (1) the price of ebooks in Australia and (2) the lack of availability of the books you want. He also seems perplexed at the nostalgia for print books that is used, whether deliberately or not to, try to stymie the rise of ebooks. In a piece on the “death of the paperback” broadcast this morning he admits to not caring less about the smell, the touch, the look of a print book – he just wants to read something and he’s happy it’s on a screen. The podcast is available here. Also there is a previous segment – “books in a digital age” parts 1 & 2 (with Joel Becker from the Australian Booksellers Association ) available here and here.
