Patti Smith on books

Patti Smith, who won a 2010 National Book Award for Just Kids, had this to say in last night’s acceptance speech:

Please, no matter how we advance technologically, please don’t abandon the book. There is nothing in our material world more beautiful than the book.

I have a nook, but I concur (I still do most of my reading the old-fashioned way)!

Congratulations to this year’s winners:
