I can't see the end of a children's pop-up book. I love them even today.

Well I like them, but they will go off to be with the records.

I can only hope they never really go away. I hate reading on a screen and there is nothing like holding a real book, flipping through real pages.

I do love to read books and have since I was 8 y/o. But I too must evolve and join the 21st century. Noted and signed. Thanks Cal.

Yes, e-books impart information just as well, but nothing can ever replace the feel and smell of real Books!

Children's books will be printed for generations. The simple act of teaching to read stems from page by page reading. The day children's books come to scrolling, our children will be at a serious disadvantage.

I love technology but I will always only read books made of paper.

Electronic media only works as long as the electricity and batteries do. To enjoy a paper book, all I need is the sunlight - which is provided free of charge.

I've got lots of books and candles to read if the electrical grid goes off for quite awhile. I also still have my old typewriter and lots of paper (and some carbon paper).
