    This is an age when reading and thinking is a revolutionary act – possibly it’s has always been so. Occasionally such a revolution will create a new age, such as the Enlightenment. We need a new enlightenment to ward off another Dark Ages, which we seem to be drifting aimlessly towards.

    I am solidly in Group 2, with my handwritten journal beside me. Sadly, my millennial wife and her contemporaries are Group 3. Action without consequences. Words without meaning.

    As a library staffer, I fear the proliferation of e-books. Does a book not suit the current political climate? Delete it from the internet, and no one can prove it ever existed.

      The students in my Intro to Humanities course have the option of buying a hard copy book instead of using the e-textbook. A few of them have purchased the hard copy version so far. Perhaps there is hope!
