I certainly hope this is not the future of books.
I try not to be too nostalgic about a paper and ink book...but there is something about a book that a computer screen or Kindle cannot replace. I know my wife would enjoy having the extra space in the house if my books were all electronic, but I cannot imagine life without a tangible book in my hand.
I certainly enjoy having books electronically...for searching and writing papers. But nothing can replace the feel of a book in hand for a relaxing evening.
Ok...I am nostalgic.
