The coming of television has dramatically affected the reading habit of many people. Instead of reading the news from newspapers and magazines, they'd rather watch the six o'clock or late evening report. In research, instead of poring over books in the library, they would rather call on Google to do the search for them. There is something really fascinating and fulfilling about reading, but it now seems lost. The written word is now digitized and the story presented in audio-video form. How about you, do you still read newspapers and books? Or you just rely on television for news and the Internet for more information?
