Books won’t die, I tell you. Because you can read your book in the loo, can’t you?
If people love paper, there must be a reason for it. And there is. It is highly portable (you can even read it on the loo), infinitely flexible (when was the last time you were able to scribble on an electronic document?) and embodies very high-resolution display technology, which consumes no battery power. And it doesn’t have to be booted up before you can read it.
