    I'm always a little bit suspicious of surveys, but this is unexpected, given the existenceo of the Kindle, and the popularity of books via Amazon, ease of ordering, books are cheaper than ever, and so forth.

    Is this the dominance of the visual culture, laptops, smartphones, TV, etc I wonder?

    What a shame, books are like air for me.

    You just have to keep breathing them in and sometimes in great gulps.

    How's Harvard going Liam, and how are your eyes, I hope they don't have you reading too much up there?
