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.

    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)

    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.

    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.
