As a voracious “reader” I had the following brain spasm occur to me today. As I was walking out of a supermarket, there was a small display where piles of books were on sale at deep discount. The thought that went through my mind was “Do the still print books?” I swear to God that is what I asked myself!
I read a local newspaper daily. I “read” 50+ books a year via Kindle and listen to books from Audible.com on my Samsung S III phone. I read internet news, opinion, blogs and social goofiness at least an hour a day via the net on my computer(s).
When we travel we read the local newspaper via the net and don’t miss a word and do the same daily reading via the phone and computer.
Do they really still print books? Maybe the question should be, Why do they still print books?
