As efficient and high-tech our gadgets are, it is interesting to step back and observe how little the technology is used...

Nothing will ever replace the goodness of good old paper texts. Period!

Hard to say, new York Times almost bankrupt because of this... Newspaper is extinct in western world and now everyone use iPad to read CNN and BBC...

Am I the only one who loves the smell of new books, or am I just weird?

I also love the smell of old books. To bad my infinity pad and nexus 7 smell like nothing. Ohhh well i dont even use them for books. I still have my libary card and will have it until I pass on. But anyways good job. As a fellow student I hate carrying books (and paying for them) carrying around a tablet as a book weither its a ipad or a droid tablet would be easier than going to my car to change books instead every other class cause I hate a heavy backpack.
