It seems like everything we see as traditional is getting thrown out to make room for new technology and ideas. Does anyone remember the days when a Nintendo 64 had the best gaming graphics? How about when you couldn't use your home phone and computer at the same time because of dial-up? Okay, we can all admit that some of the changes were probably for the better, but sometimes I get the feeling we're taking it too far. Several locally owned bookstores have dried up where I live, as well as the bigger ones like Borders, because of a combination of a bad economy, e-books, and the fact that kids these days just don't read like they used to! People have told me to get a Kindle or Nook because they're so much better than reading plain old books, but I'm not gonna lie--I enjoy sitting down and opening up an old smelly book and having to turn the pages manually (gasp!). Isn't that easier on the eyes anyway? So here's my question for you, just out of curiosity: Do you think books should be read the old-fashioned way, or is it a good thing to be keeping up with technology through e-books?
