A La Carte (9/26)

eBooks and Reading - Here’s an interesting ramification of the move to ebooks: “If the transition to eBooks is complete — and with libraries being among the most significant buyers of books, it now seems inevitable — the flexibility of book ownership will be gone forever. Knowledge, in as much as books represent it, will belong to someone else.”

Incredible Eyes - Here are some amazing photographs of eyes. Yes, eyes. And not just human eyes, either.

Google Ruins Memory - “If you think your memory has fallen off a cliff over the past ten years or so, it might not be memory loss due to aging. It might be due to the way Google restructures how our brains archive knowledge.”

Broader Interests - Ed Stetzer writes about pastors who give up pastoring a local church to dedicate their time to broader interests (like writing and speaking).

The X-Factor - The doctors advised Pamela Cook to abort her baby when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She refused. See the rest of her story above.

[Believers] have joy and comfort—that joy that angels cannot give, and devils cannot take. —Christopher Fowler
