On the value of the book: "Books should accompany people from the cradle to their grave because they contain many interesting things. Books are part of our culture and have had a huge impact. We shouldn't just throw that away so easily."
On the future of the book: "I think we're seeing a saturation of the e-book market. In the US, they've settle in at around 30 percent of the market. They will slow down there and that means 70 percent of the market is still made up of paper books and I think that's wonderful. The book won't die."
