Will people still read books 100 years from now? A few years ago, many people would have said no. It seemed likely that computers and the internet would replace books. Now, however, most experts think that
books are here to stay. There are a number of reasons why computers will not replace books entirely. One reason is that books on paper are much cheaper than computers. And books do not need a power source. You can read a book for as long as you want and wherever you want. You never have to worry about losing power.

will be electronic. One of the people working on the book of the future is Professor Joseph Jacobson from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
