In such a day and age, as today, technology is amazingly advanced. It doesn't fall short of affecting the way read either, nowadays there are many different ways to read a book without having to ever set foot in a library. With the creation of the Nook, Kindle and I-Pad you can take a virtual copy, or many virtual copies, with you wherever you go. This can be convenient when you're a college or high school student who doesn't want to carry 15 pounds of books on their backs, however, for me there is nothing better than a good old fashioned book to read. There are many things a book has, that a virtual edition could never have! Will books be missed? Are they on the verge of extinction? Let me know what you girls think!
