A listener's response to bookless libraries

This final note today -- more of a comment, really -- on the interview we did yesterday about the bookless library they're building down in San Antonio. All iPads and e-readers, not a hardback in sight.

That doesn't sit too well with Elaine Amsterdam Farley in Sand Point, Idaho. Listen to the audio above to hear what she had to say.

And I'll tell you: I go to bed with my iPad every night, but amen, right?
