Sadsies.

There's nothing like the smell of a new book.

Unfortunately, going to a book store and picking up a brand new book and breaking it in will be something of the past.

Amazon has announced that their e-books are outselling their actual books.

"For every 100 traditional print volumes sold last month, Amazon sold 105 e-books," the company said.

And their e-reader, the Kindle, is blowing up! Since it's release, it's sold more than 950,000 e-book titles in just four short years. The device itself has sold more copies than the sales of hardcover and paperbooks COMBINED!!

Wowsa!!

The future is here, you guys. One good thing we can see coming from this is that less paper will be used, making for less waste.

There's nothing like a traditional paper book though.

Which do you prefer? Actual book or e-book?
