Can the Kindle be stopped? Are books slowy becoming dinosaurs?


I've heard that some schools are abandoning books in favor of kindles. I'm not fearful of change or progress, I just do not want to lose real books.

    Not all the world's knowledge, and to study anything in depth you need a real book. Books don't go wrong, or come in the wrong format. Other electronic devices have been hyped and been popular, and then disappeared once their limitations were clear.

    My only concern with your textbook response is if too much time is spent by a young person looking at the artificial display on a Kindle, what will happen to their eyesight? Can they adjust back and forth from a Kindle and a bla ckboard? ( if used)

    I agree a hundred years with you Wes. I kept throwing old books away but it still seems like a shameful waste. No use storing that stuff when I'm almost living out of my trunk.
