The Analog Life


I broke up with my kindle around the time I noticed that 1) my eyes were scanning through all text encountered via a screen and 2) smart people were writing about how scrolling has taught our eyes to only scan digital information and 3) other smart people were saying our brains actually retain more of what we read from physical books than from digital.

Yes, the books I don’t want to borrow from the library do add up but it’s far less costly than spending precious time reading/scanning stuff I’m not going to absorb.
