The end of hardcopy...

So on the one hand the Pope's instruction Verbum Domini picks up the suggestion that Bibles be prominently displayed in Churches to refocus attention on sacred Scripture, as the elaborately decorated manuscript books did in the Latin West during the Middle Ages.

On the other hand we have ebooks, kindle readers, ipads and more, infiltrating even the Vatican choir....


Which do you think will win!

Mind you, maybe it all makes sense if books become again as rare as they once were...
