I love “real books” but my whole office is now a library (we are talking 7 book shelves on every wall, even over one window) because hubby is a bibliophile too! I’ve had to break down and decide which genres to keep recently, and have many large totes to give away for trade, but can’t force myself to take the last step.
On the other side I have thousands of Kindle stories due to freebies with a few hundred mostly on sale. Before there was a Kindle I have probably close to thousand of PDF’s ibooks, Nook books etc. These collections come from years working in bookstores, and then long term illnesses that I escape from with books.
I think paper books will be like records they faded to near extinction, now they are back in favor, but will never be for the masses again.
