"Adults prefer paper books, why expect any difference from children? The eye scans the page - you look at the text. You can use your finger as a place-holder, the field of view can cover much of the visual field if you want … you can become immersed in the material, text doesn't roll forward with your eye fixed. Favourite books are like favourite toys, they age and wear out, but every tear and stain is part of your story."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
