People keep books

Adam Grant: “Articles fade after a week; people keep books.”

Articles may fade after a week, but what about tweets? Or videos? These things, though ephemeral, are also nearly permanent in their housing on the web.

Books are an easy reference, visible and tangible. The internet creates a unique storehouse. It is both intangible and yet infinite.

For me, books are easy. I can hold it in my hands, see the written word.
