No, the way it is read might be changing .. i.e electronically rather than paper.
That's what I was thinking too.
The popularity of Kindles, Nooks and other electronic reading devices would say "no", but how it's being done has definitely changed. Actual books, newspapers and magazines, arguably, are becoming obselete.
no, it's just that smug, blissful ignorance is re-emerging as the status quo
Not dying, but changing. I don't think it's really changing for the better, though. The written-word trend leans toward short, random pieces of information nowadays - a reflection of the fast-paced world we live in, and of the physical availability of information, both on paper and on the internet. Qucik, short and shallow is the way to go.
Of course, even if I don't like it, I don't think this is fault of the technology in itself.
I think it's dying. eBooks have more pictures, and are shorter then traditional books, plus they have links to cliff notes just in case you didn't ip understand it. Reading comprehension, and attention span has gone down the drain.
No, it's simply evolving.
No, sales of ebooks are very strong. It's just evolving.
When I see that my fellow university students cannot spell correctly and don't know how to pronounce words that are fairly basic..I despair.
I think reading has given way to other things like film, social media and video games..
If it is dying our world is in huge ****. No I don't think so, I think we are adjusting to our recources
Not in my house.
i don't think casually reading random books like many people do is important.
It already has
Not in Russia.
hey :) where are you from?
Fortunately yes :(.
No! Would be the end of the world!!
i think it is becuase of all the new technology thats coming out. I'm still reading. but its the younger generations not wanting to read books.
Reading books from the library might be but I think reading might be expanding because it is so necessary for the internet.
