Maurice Sendak, the author of "Where the Wild Things Are" was strongly against eBooks.
In an interview with The Believer, shortly before his death, he explained:
"It (eBook) is giving up a form that is so beautiful. A book is really like a lover. It arranges itself in your life in a way that is beautiful. Even as a kid, my sister, who was the eldest, brought books home for me, and I think I spent more time sniffing and touching them than reading. I just remember the joy of the book; the beauty of the binding. The smelling of the interior. Happy."
