Andrew Marr admits that his “enthusiasm for traditional books is just this side of pervy.” In an article for the Guardian, Marr relates his love for traditional books, admits his predilection for reading news and other sources on the web, and falls for the seductive properties of the e-reader: the size, the portability. In the end, Marr acknowledges that the ebook reader has a place in his life. He’s not quite ready to give up his pulp fetish, but he’s convinced that for newspapers, RSS feeds, and other disposables, the e-reader might just be a step above.
