Much informational content is now being distributed exclusively in electronic form.

Computers are as ubiquitous as television and radio sets. They're being given away free with subscriptions to Internet services, much as cellular phones are given to customers who will sign up for a year's service.

Books on tape have been available for many years, but they were not readily accepted when they were new. Part ofrepparttar 108538 resistance was due to a reluctance to change established habit. But at one time, even printed books were a rarity. People were used to being TOLD stories, and few could read. Of course that changed over time.

Then those who read books avoided books on tape because they viewed it as a step backward. Many felt a loss of intimacy withrepparttar 108539 printed word that they could read at their own pace and that allowed them to paint their own "mind-pictures" ofrepparttar 108540 activity being described.

Then came movies based on books, andrepparttar 108541 screen-writer's interpretation ofrepparttar 108542 author's words don't always agree with those ofrepparttar 108543 viewer who has "readrepparttar 108544 book."

With E-Books one still can read. If he wants, he can haverepparttar 108545 printed word to read from.

But just as e-mail has supplanted written correspondence to a great degree, gaining knowledge by reading fromrepparttar 108546 computer screen has become commonplace.

Some have said that nothing can takerepparttar 108547 place of sitting in a chair and reading a book to a child.They're absolutely right. Butrepparttar 108548 truth is thatrepparttar 108549 computer already has becomerepparttar 108550 learning center in millions of homes. Adding E-Books to one's educational toolbox can only enrichrepparttar 108551 lives and enjoyment of families everywhere.
