A headline from The Onion and a headline not from The Onion:
  • "Electronic Books With Musty Book Smell Launched"
  • "Hard To Tell If Wikipedia Entry On Dada Has Been Vandalized Or Not"

Here and here.

Have a good weekend.

  1. I don't know what's whackier, the e-book that smells musty or the fact that a "survey of 600 college students conducted by pollster Zogby International found that 43 percent of students identified smell, either a new or old smell, as the quality they most liked about books as physical objects."

    What about turning pages? Reading words that are actually there most of the time?

    I feel old. (I did guess that this was the real story though. Ha!)
