Susan Cuff: We subscribe to Time, but I occasionally pick up a copy of Newsweek if there’s a story that interests me. What distresses me is the demise of yet another print publication. I understand and embrace the shift to digital; I read a lot of publications online. But, at heart, I’m a lover of the printed page, the one I can hold in my hands, fold the corners, smell the ink and smack a spider with. I love newspapers, magazines, harcover books, paperbacks, journals and manuscripts. I relish the feel and smell of paper. I have a couple of boxes of magazines stored in the basement, editions that chronicled a momentous or historic occasion. I’m unapologetically old school when it comes to the printed word.
Question: Do you still relish the smell of paper when it comes to books, journals and manuscripts?
