A Luddite makes the leap, embraces technology and saves her aching back


Full disclosure: When it comes to technology, I’m what you might call a throwback. OK, a Luddite. Whatever. And when it comes to reading a well-written story, the feel of smooth, durable, acid-free, perfectly toned creamy white pages that balance just the right dose of ink into painstakingly designed fonts are soothing. I even like the smell of old, yellowing books.
