Yes, we went through this last year - probably took two years to pick the book, and in the end it probably wouldn't have mattered much what it was - although we did acquire a rather nice item. How about finding a book that you can get in print and then choose the print and digital version - one foot in the past, one poised in the future.


We talked about that-- also about scanning something... we'll see. One of the ideas I really like is a collection of geospatial data. It is visual, digital, and practical. I just hope we don't end up with Moby Dick or something like that.

I nominate Cory Doctorow's Makers from Tor Books. It first appeared serialized on a blog (http://www.tor.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=blog&id=38507), it comes with a Flash game, and it's also available as a print book.
