The mission of the Michigan News is to bring the world to Kalamazoo. We have been doing that 365 days a year since 1947. The world has changed drastically during these 65 years -- the popularity of e-readers is one of my many challenges. As the owner of a brick and mortar bookstore, my job is to educate my diverse populations on the value of coming into my store and becoming a part of an enlightened community. What e-books, digital magazines, and newspapers-on-line do for us is force us to face the hard truth that we are losing more and more of our cultural heritage.
Therefore, thanks to e-books, I am doing an even better job of connecting with the customers that come in the News' door. I am not interested in being a part of the e-phenomenon. I am one of those who still loves the printed copy to mark up, to rip out and paste on my mirror or attach to my refrigerator, or to carry in my pocket and share with a friend.
