A book free society….difficult to imagine for the people of the present generation because of the fact that all our lives have been with books. Thinking of the future where the people who want to read something may never open a book, but just log on to their computer and read is a looming reality.
There could be many advantages and also a few disadvantages of the society where there is no book, but only ebooks and computer information. As the information dissemination process is increasing, there are more people who read all the information they want to read from the internet. There has been a decrease in the number of people reading newspapers because the internet has many sites that have the latest breaking news.
Any person who would like to read a story need not buy a book, but instead buy a e book and read the same thing. So, even books that are printed for education may not be printed in future because of the availability of the same information on the computer. In fact the computer is very easy to access.
Cloud computing is a reality and with this, there is no need for a person to carry all the information from the computer too. All the information is stored remotely in another server and a person who is logged into the internet will be able to read all the relevant things from the virtual storage. So, this is one of the best things that can happen for people as there is no burden to carry. The loss of the printed books does not mean that there will be no information available. It only means that the physical books will not be present and all the information is retained in the virtual form. You can also save paper by not printing books and make the world greener!
