Boy are things changing. Asked someone the other day if they read any good books lately and they said "yes-I checked out 2 good audio books at the library and downloaded one from the internet." Uh - what happened to the leather bound and paperback books we used to see everywhere? The face of literature is really changing for sure. I love a good book to read. It keeps my mind sharp and my brain alive and my imagination flowing. Audio books seem like a tranquilizer to me-they knock me out in the first chapter. Or the voice irratates me and I can't concentrate on the book. Guess I'm weird. Knowledge is power-and the gateway to knowledge is books. Just like blogging is changing the journalistic field, technology is changing the face of literature again. The history of our world has been recorded by writing it in books for others to read. When you read something-it tends to stay in your mind better than when you listen to someone else say it. I don't know - I hope technology doesn't eventually make our brains lazy.
