Great piece from Lev Grossman on the radical changes that the codex introduced into reading, specifically the ability to interact with the text in a non-linear manner. He makes a valid point that e-readers make similar interaction a clumsy affair.

I do love my Kindle, and I read a lot on it, but this is one of many reasons why I won’t be giving up on physical books anytime soon.
