In a Digital World, Print Books Maintain Appeal
Kathy Miscioscio and Julie Meier share a passion for books but go their own ways in how they read. Miscioscio, 60, a marketing consultant in Pearl River, N.Y., says she's addicted to her Sony e-reader. The only time she buys or borrows a print book is when it's not available digitally. Meier, 43, a marketing director in Beaver Falls, Pa., says she's "Kindle-less and Nook-less and happily so." She prefers her books on paper, not screens. After working on a computer all day, she says, "I want a book in my hand. Turning its pages is my way of knowing it's time to relax and slow down."
