Jeff Pearlman waxes nostalgic

Writer, Jeff Pearlman, writes at CNN about the closing of this local, beloved Borders bookstore.   I understand his nostalgia for print books, and of course the bookstore (substitute library for me) as place.  However, I find myself swinging back and forth between feeling nostalgic toward print one minute, and feeling disgust toward the huge, dust collecting, heavy artifacts the next.  I wonder if people felt this way during the demise of the horse as the primary form of transportation?   The streets are certainly a lot  cleaner.
