Hard copies
Peter Funt: “And so ticket stubs join theater playbills, picture postcards, handwritten letters and framed photos as fading forms of preserving our memories. It raises the question, Is our view of the past, of our own personal history, somehow different without hard copies?”

And how does one inscribe a gift book on the Kindle?"
