The Thick Self

Rev. Julia Hamilton

One of the things I will miss in the digital age, when books are all online and paper is a thing of the past, one of the things I will miss is the writing of notes in the margins of a book. Don’t get me wrong – there are some good trade-offs with digital books. I read a lot of books on my Kindle, and hopefully save a few trees and generate less waste. I check books out from the library digitally, and read them on my Kindle, too. It’s fantastic to be able to download a book from the library from the comfort of my couch. But when I know that I will want to read a book more than once, especially a book that I might use for sermon inspiration, for example, I still like to buy a paper copy. Not because of the reading part, but because of the writing part: the underlining, the dog-earing of the pages, and the chance to write in the margins.
