Well , ebooks are not a fad , they are here to stay . More tablet devices are coming from different companies , as well as reading devices eBooks. People have to get used to, because of the way technology is going . That said, the printed books are not obliged to go away for a number of reasons . However, print books will probably demand printing or fewer each print. Furthermore, the trend seems to indicate that what will disapear paperbacks are mass market , with the big publishers who favor hardcover and trade paperbacks . Book sales in mass market paperback continue to decline . Unfortunately , change is always necessary for growth , if there is no growth , things stagnate and eventually disappear. And think of it this way , if the books become more accessible electronically through electronic library collections , which means that those without the beneift of a local library , but they do have access to a PC or a tablet connected to the Internet , have access to more books to read . I love printed books and still buy them , but I've also been one of the first of ebooks . I started reading books electronically , in February 2003 , and frankly , I like to have both options available .

I think you can read This Is Your Brain on Music : The Science of a Human Obsession [ Bargain Price ] MedlinePlus There are questions that are too big for science , no gods , for example, or what is love ? And perhaps never be known scientifically why music does what it does and why we care about it so. But for many reasons , the music should be a profitable subject for scientific research .

depends MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I read books if I had the MedlinePlus BOOK MedlinePlus if I have (generally , if its available in my area or language) then I just use the internet MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I also feel sadness, so the books are just being dust collectors on the shelves , but with the recession , sometimes reading appeals ... more or perhaps reading at home is more convenient than going to a library

First, the Internet is not a fad , lol . You and I know this is going to grow much bigger until it is our absolute primary information center for all . Ahh , I love technology . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus But I also agree with you that normal books are good too. There is a certain something that you can not get the technology that is in a book . You know , the smell of old pages fresh or humidity , the feeling of a heavy story thick, deep in your hands or in your backpack , waiting to be read . There is something unique about him , just that there is something unique about playing a guitar in a tube amp oldschool , or record music tracks on the tape rather than through computers. I do not think that these things will never die completely , because people understand the importance of those things when it comes to art . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus But in the end , I'm fine with the way things are going, because computers provide access to art from around the world . Not to mention , read manga ( Japanese comic book style ) and who are growing exponentially in popularity worldwide . No dying soon , lol .
