Sherman Alexie On Colbert: "The Localized Appreciation Of Books Is Gone" (VIDEO)

Sherman Alexie was on "The Colbert Report" last night to promote his new book, "War Dances". The interview focused mostly on Alexie's views on eBooks, and why he has refused to allow any of his books to be made available in this format. He talked about the value of authors being "old fashioned storytellers" and the danger of moving too far away from the old models. "The localized appreciation of books is gone," he said.
