I’m convinced the paperless society is a mirage. It’s on the horizon but not really there.

“Reading to do” …in which certain facts are sought from a mass of words, a task for which computers are clearly well suited.

“Reading to learn”…which concludes that it is no easier to learn ideas from hypertext than from a book.

“Reading to relax”…The kind of reading carried by most newspapers, popular magazines, popular novels and popular non-fiction.’

In a nutshell; books are friendlier than computers.
