I am slowly starting to wonder what happened to people who used to read books. In my 'good old' days books were rare but we would somehow borrow and read. Today books are plentiful but hardly anyone seems to read them.

A book does not need to be 'booted', no recharge is necessary, it stays quietly in the corner till you pick it up. You can read even one page at a time and put it away. You can read at your own pace unlike TV programs, you can lie down, relax and go deep into your thoughts when reading.

When our library had 500 books years ago, we had a hundred people borrowing from it. Now we have more than 4,000 books and not even thirty people read its books.
