I am a confessed bookaholic on top of being a compulsive book buyer. Needless to say, anytime a moving of household is required, my wife and I dread the moving of our library the most. I generally attribute this to my childhood dream of one day having enough books to require the use of one of those ladders on casters that run along the bookshelves. Modern technology is making this much harder to do as it’s allows the purchase of space-saving, digital media much easier to acquire.
Craig Mod’s lecture on the emotional and physical attachment we give to books and how we could/should be designing for future books is a fantastic listen. Take the 40 minutes and enjoy.
