The day the E-book replaces the book will be a sad day, amirite?

the book endured the radio, movies, T.V, Internet and it WILL endure the e-book. There is nothing that compares to the comforting pages of a nice book.

It's already started.A ton of bookstores have been shutting down lately.

I do want a book reader, but I will probably continue to buy paper books because I collect them. If I really enjoy a book, I must have a hard copy that I can see and hold and put in my bookshelf. It's a sentimental thing.

Why? Can you imagine how many trees would be saved if we eliminated paper books and made Ebooks cheap to own?

But yes, I do agree with you.

It's not going to be just a day, it's taking place already, ever so slowly...

It's the same thing. I get ebooks on my phone with my Kindle app... I have a mountain of books on a shelf. In October I'll walk around with the entire Potter series in my pocket 24/7... They're incredibly convenient. I like books and eboooks equally.

Personally, I think it's a BIG in this day and world, but nonetheless good.

I recall a similar analogy about how the automobile didn't replace the bicycle, so people shouldn't freak out over ebooks.

I know ebook isn't the same with paperbacks/hardcovers but it's easier to read. Especially if you're going out of town/country and you can't exactly bring your whole collection with you. It's easier if you have an iPad or Kindle.

Who cares? It's the same thing, with less paper.
