With movies and video games increasing in their popularity, it’s often easy to forget about a very traditional form of entertainment: books . Indeed, each and every year, the written word seems to lose a little bit of its value. People, it seems, are looking around for faster, more efficient ways to spend their free time. Even school programs are deemphasizing the written world, moving instead towards multimedia presentations, the internet, and what have you. Of course, none of this is to say that lovers of the written word are few and far between. Despite the increasing disapproval of our culture at large, books nerds are still alive and well. And though you may not think so at first, they are fighting back! If you feel like you have lost your interest in the written word as of late; if you feel that you have grown tired of the hassle of the public library and the actual weight of a book when you’re holding it—then there are a few things that you might want to take into consideration before you write your pastime off entirely. Indeed, things are a changing!
The first thing that you might want to take into consideration, here, is that you do not have to carry paper books around if you do not want to. Indeed, you can read just about anything that you’d ever want to read digitally. Many companies—well, many publishing houses—are devoting a substantial amount of their resources to digitizing their writings. These digitized copies are available for download on the internet, typically through the major retailers that you would expect. Of course, this is great news if you still enjoy the written word, but you’re tired of heading out to the store every time that you finish one of your stories. All that you are going to have to do is pick up your computer and download a new story. It’s as simple as that. And the best part, here, is that you typically stand to save a pretty penny every time that you purchase a story. Most publishers are going to offer their digital copies at a discount.
If you like the feel of books –if you like their weight when they’re in your hands, and if you like to carry them around with you—then you might consider buying a digital books reader. These machines look like tiny little laptops, and they’re designed to carry your entire digital library. These devices are, you should know, rather amazing. With them, you can have hundreds, even thousands of stories at your disposal wherever you go! You will never have to worry about adding a bunch of weight to your purse or backpack; you’ll have all of your stories with your digitally, and all in a nice, computerized package. If you are looking for the future of publication, you are reading about it right here: computerized libraries. If you have never looked into these devices before, then you are going to want to begin to do so now. They are getting very popular, indeed!
As you can see, the written word is far from breathing its last breath. If you have never looked into the future of reading, then you might as well hop on the bus and enjoy the ride. Rejoice, readers!
