  • Hope not... my husband longs to be a librarian.

    Truthfully, I don't think it will. Part of the joy of reading a book is the feel of the book in your hand and the sound of the pages turning. Yes I am a nerd... I can admit it :D

  • I don't think so and I hope not. I can't stand to read unless it's from a real book.

  • Hopefully not, there is something much richer about a real book...

  • I don't think so... There is nothing like opening up a book and flipping the pages. I got a nook and took it back and it wasn't the same.

  • what would happen to all the real books?

    Answer by lovinangels at 1:06 AM on Jul. 28, 2010

  • I know many people who like to hold the book, enjoy the anticipation of turning the pages, the smell etc..

    Will books go the way of records, tapes, 8 tracks and Cd's? I'm not sure.

  • Well kids could download all of their books from school and not have to carry all of their books... Save a tree...
