Is Our Literary Legacy Threatened by ebooks?


We hear it all the time. The electronic book readers like Amazon’s Kindle and Sony’s eReader are going to be the downfall of printed books. If you believe that you may have been one of the folks in Columbus’ day who believed the world was flat. Don’t worry. It won’t happen at least for a very long time.
What do you think?

I think the two forms of books can coexist. Our children are injuring themselves carrying back packs filled with text books, wouldn't it be nice if they just had to carry a note binder and an electronic reader. Just think of the savings in taxes if text books were ebooks.

Hi Steven,
It will happen. Textbooks may be the first books to become digital only for all students.
