"But I don’t read books ever on any devices. I understand why people in publishing do, because the volume is too great, and I understand why reviewers do, people who are required to read six or seven books a week, and I understand if you’re taking a flight to Zimbabwe and you’re going to be in the air for sixteen hours and you want to bring four books. But if that’s not the case, isn’t it always more pleasurable to just carry around a book? So I hope that bookstores still exist, and that books as objects still exist, in the future. Other than that, I think we’re good."
