From “Galley Cat,” by Dianna Dilworth: “Nearly 70 percent of consumers feel it is unlikely that they’ll give up on printed books by 2016, according to a new report from Ricoh and analyst firm IT Strategies with the University of Colorado at Boulder. The main reasons for preferring print are that these consumers like the look and feel of a real book, they don’t have to strain their eyes to read print and they like putting books on the bookshelf.”  For more, visit:  http://bit.ly/19vWuQ8

I finally broke down this past October and bought an e-reader.  I haven’t downloaded one book on it; but, instead, use it as a tablet.  For that, it suits my needs just fine.
