"This thing loves books."

 

I'm oddly touched by the thought that the Google book scanner loves the books it scans.

 

I do wish that Clay could come up with something better to bring to the "ebooks vs. paper books" argument than "people still like the smell of books." For the record, I think book smells can be fascinating, but my continued purchasing of paper books has nothing to do with how they smell.
