A lot of historians will not be happy with this idea..especially if they are thinking of destroying the books.
Who said anything about destroying the books? :D they are just vanishing, meaning from the school i guess and too others that need it but can't get it or a digital copy :D. by the way... whats the point of the library now then? it would be easier to check out the book from your room :)
if ereaders get cheaper many more people might start reading alot more. Might reduce the number of idiots who try to trade pot and a ipod for a ipad lol.
LOL fat, thats an awesome connection! :P
If only the ipad didn't cost so much as to trade pot for it... Hey hes only trying to get that ipad to learn...! :D
They will probably put the books in storage or donate them.
That would be cool if they lended out e-readers at the library as well.

I don't know what's wrong with me, but I can never read books or any large block of text comfortably on a screen. Articles designed specifically for a website are fine, but something about the traditional paragraph format on a pc screen just makes my eyes wonder and loose focus, especially if it's scanned text. If my school wanted to do this with textbooks, they'd be losing thousands of sheets of paper due to me printing everything out.
you can listen to them on some ereaders if you cant stand reading it.
That's an option.
I don't have anything to say. Sure the paper books are going to still exist and sure e-readers are going to be in the library but what else can I say except it's a step forward.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
E-ink screens look surprisingly like real paper. I was pretty shocked lol
