I say “almost” because I don’t think books are dying.  There is something rewarding that accompanies possessing a collection of books – as convenient as the Kindle or iPad may be.  Print newspapers, however (see image text), are a different story.  How many people collect those (that said, I’m sure there’s a cult of newspaper-hoarders lurking out there somewhere)?

Today’s Tunes
X&Y, Coldplay
