Bookless libraries…so it begins.

Or rather continues.

San Antonio will be opening the country’s first book-less library. No physical books, just words made out of light on e-readers and digital screens.

This is well and all, but are millenials going to be the generation to tell their grandkids “I remember when ink was printed on sheets made of tree.”

The thought that the printed publications I loved so much are constantly becoming obsolete (to the point that many younger folks when I’m older may not even know what they are) is somewhat depressing. Though, to be honest, I’m not sure if it’s the fact that physical books are being obsolete or the fact that I’m getting old is the sad part.

But I have every reason to believe it’s the former.
