Changing times... how much longer will we have books?
I have lots and lots of books. Some would say I have too many... but is that possible? When I heard about the demise of Borders, I cringed. When I walk into Books-A- Million and see the magazines spread out to cover the racks rather than jammed together to be able to fit them all in... I cringe. When I walk into Barnes and Noble and see the display of Nooks at the front, foretelling the future of the business, I cringe.
Imagine growing up in a time when books are oddities, where newspapers are only available on line and where magazines are so thin you can read them in fifteen to twenty minutes. Is that time now? Yikes!
