“The book, despite its humble and ancient beginnings, is still the most
compact and efficient entertainment system available today. It requires no
batteries, no peripherals, no software, no upgrades. It is compact and can
easily fit in a pocket or handbag. It provides more entertainment, hour for
hour, than ten video games, fifty movies, or a thousand cellphone
ring-tones. It’s study and durable: Kept away from water, a book can last
centuries. Keeping a book with you is excellent insurance against those
empty moments on the bus, subway, in the waiting room or between activities.”
