37. Never, and I don't want a Kindle or similar.
I like the feel of the book, turning the pages....one after the other. The smell. Going to the bookstore and browsing. Picking up a book I've had for years and re-reading it, rediscovering the story. WHAT will happen when people are reliant on electronic devices for reading and then those in control take it all away? I know that might sound silly, but it's something to think about.

Incidentally, my 18 year old daughter loves books and has many. They mean something to her too.
