I know that EGM wasn't what it once was at the end, but you shouldn't have used it instead of toilet paper.
..... Sick... and funny!

I don't think books will ever die, people read books before they go to sleep, and that thing will be bad for there eyes so I don't think it will "FULLY" kill books.

books are cheaper to hand to a 5 year old they don't require much up keep and don't break when you drop them

When people can store data in their heads and randomly access it and read a book.

Everything's going to be wireless soon. All the signs I see point that way. And the size of phones in Japan, they have ones as small as a Saltine cracker. I'm sure there will be prosthetic devices adapted for whatever passes as the smart phone of 2020. Any "book" is instantly available to anyone. The hard copy is redundant.

That's when books become an anachronism, which is what I think the OP was trying to get at. Now, books might not be dead in the Guangzhou province for the foreseeable future. The despots ruling China have to figure how to deal with this alternate source of knowledge. It won't be that big a deal for the west; probably what most people will notice is that Wikipedia has suddenly become reliable. Very Happy
