I don’t have an e-reader yet, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time.  I’ve resisted because like any good book lover, I worry about the future of bound books.  Fortunately, there are places like the Virginia Arts of the Book Center that are keeping the fine crafts of book-making and letterpress printing alive.  I visited their shop and did a story about it for Virginia Public Radio.  Click here to listen.  And, if you’re in Virginia, visit their website to drool over all of the workshops they offer (think of how impressed your grandmother would be with a hand-printed holiday card!)
