I just read an article in the Puget Sound Business Journal stating that Amazon said it sold more Kindle books than the “old-fashioned” hard cover books. Read story
What’s your take on this?
Mine is two-fold…
1 – I hope we aren’t seeing the demise of the hard cover book. I’ve seen the Kindle and it’s pretty cool I must admit. However, there is still something special about having a hard cover book in your hands reading. I don’t think that will ever change for me.
2 – I hope this means more people are reading and that young people will keep reading after school. We as a society need to keep reading a variety of subjects in order to maintain and advance our knowledge and being considered “well-rounded.”
I encourage you to read often. My goal is one book a month minimum. Right now, I’m on two books. One is religious in nature and the other is fiction. I have the next two picked out already – political science and self-development.
What are you reading?
