When I made my Christmas list in 2010, a Barnes and Noble NookColor was on that list. I was dying for one.

Then I did some research, playing with an e-reader, and realized; this isn't for me. I thought about the growing library of books I have and thought about all those being stored on this almost paper thin electronic device. I felt like I was cheating.

Some people are Ramsey's Restaurant feel that electronic devices will take over and eventually books will disappear. Others, are fighting the resistance.

Here is what they had to say:


"There's a certain convenience of books. People like the feel of turning the pages."

Ed Popkoski, Toledo, Ohio, business owner


"I think they will survive. I do think people like looking through a book. It's comforting for some people."

Patricia Popkoski, Toledo, Ohio, retired


"There's more technology, like the iPads. People are reading on those. We're all going digital."

Todd Hurst, Victoria, crane operator


"I don't think books are ever going to be done with. A lot of people enjoy the classics."

Sam Hooker, Victoria, Victory Christian Life Center pastor
