Books

compare book prices old booksWhat do you know about Books,other than that they are fantastic. That wiki article is actually a great read on something that many of use take for granted, books. You might not realise it but without books, the world today would be a very different place. If Gutenberg hadn’t invented his press thing all those years ago,  reading would still be the sole realm of the rich and the wealthy.

The Internet has not quite been the end of the printed word like so many people have predicted, well not just yet anyway. I don’t know about the rest of you but I still prefer to read a book than a tablet or computer screen just for now. My childrens children might see differently, and will probably consider me to be somewhat of a luddite in that respect but for now, the printed book holds fast against the onslaught of the digital world.
