Margaret Atwood on multiplatform
Thanks to Toronto Life’s The Hype blog for alerting me to this blog post on reading by Margaret Atwood. I think her point about ebooks stands for magazines as well. (Emphasis mine.)

    "I speculate that the availability of e-books is actually increasing reading, as e-books are cheap, portable en mass, and instantly available. I also speculate – based on the two previous blogposts I did on this subject, and the wide range of comments received – that readers, given the choice, would like to have both formats – the e-book to take on travels long or short, and to read to see if the book is one you might want to keep; and the paper book for favourites, gifts, cozy reading at home (in bed and bath, for instance)."
