With e-readers and digital ways to obtain information, why are people still holding on so tightly to their books?

No one asked me if I wanted to leave behind my little sandbox, and the green bean vines under which I'd found a bunny, or my Strawberry Shortcake-decorated room. Dad got a new job. We were moving. I didn’t get to say no, but my parents did their best to involve me in the ... Read more
