While interning at the American Library in Paris a few summers ago, I came across this issue of Library Journal from 1950. This is sweet, beautiful proof that we’ve been worried about new media making reading obsolete for oh…ever.
When computers first came about, people were frightened that paper and pens would be obsolete. Remember when you could walk into any stationary store and still buy them by the bulk? Oh, that’s now? Huh.
