I've Got Gizmos and Gadgets Galore
There was a moment when I thought about blowing it on buying an e-reader of some sort.
But I nixed the idea when I saw the e-book offerings out there. It seems to me that to really use an e-reader to their potential you have to either be a big fan of old books that are now free in the public domain, or recently published books. (I was looking at the library's offerings and this is what they mainly had.)
I couldn't seem to find things published between those two time periods. And sadly, that's what I like to read.
And besides, who doesn't like a nice good old fashioned-touch-the-pages-yourself book?
I worry that someday that paper books will become scant.
But then something occured to me that alleviated that worry.
Would you give a fancy schmancy e-reader to your baby/toddler?
Yeah probably not.
Well maybe, lord knows kids are already 21st century digital kids...
But if books die out, I think picture books will be the last to go.
