It now behooves us to take heed
Reading has gone electronic.
Behold the Kindle. It's equipped
To show you electronic script.
A single device you can carry,
That summons up a whole library.
And now we have the iPad. Apple's
Wonder toy, that lets you grapple
With many a computer app,
And also shows text in a snap.
These gadgets let you read with ease,
And I suppose they're saving trees.
But I am just a backward schnook;
I must confess: I like a book.
A real book, I mean. The kind
That's made of paper, which they bind
Between two slabs of sturdy stuff.
