The media is trying to make this sound all organic and pretty.
But the truth is you can't find a hard cover book worth reading at the 5 book stores left in the United States.

I bought a new book, Hunger Games, on Amazon for 2.98. Probably cheaper than the E-book, which is probably 9.99.

I've given away almost all my print books. Love being able to pull out my Smartphone and read where ever I am.
