So I'm sitting in the library meeting with my group tonight, and one of my group members says something very interesting. He looks around and says something to the effect of " wow, look at all these books. in a few years theyll be obsolete. We can do all our research and everything online." Another member shakes her head in agreement and says "yeah, i havent had to actually use a book for research since high school. my teacher made us all use an actual book, no internet."
As I sat there and listened to their conversation, I couldn't help but think about how I would feel if books were all of a sudden obsolete, and reading online was officially the norm.
I personaly don't like that idea. I love books. As wonderful as technology, and the internet, is, nothing beats being able to open a new (or old) book and having the ability to let your mind run free....
But yeah. I don't really know where I was going with this. I guess I just figured I'd share. lol
