    I agree that books will expeditiously become digital little by little. Technology is developing fast, and more and more people are becoming more concerned with the environment (i.e. recycling paper). And that is why e-books are becoming more and more prominent as well.

    E-books have its own pros and cons. But right now, as a college, student, I do not see myself completely replacing paper books with digital ones. Especially when I need to highlight and/or take down notes on the books. But maybe someday, even those could be easily and commonly done digitally as well.

    Right now, we are still in the transition. Let’s just go with the flow and let our book of life flip its own page.
