    I'll start the ball rolling by saying that when I say 'books' I'm referring to e-publications such as what can be read with Kindle, or IPad/iPhone apps which do the same ( often better) My own preference for quiet time and relaxation will always lean to 'reading' rather than 'watching'...
    Same with News Apps, give me the printed word over video any day. I can digest at 'my own pace' read & re-read and sift content much better than being spoon fed by 'talking heads'..
    Possibly I'm driven by my late Mum's worries about the demise of the world coming because of evils such as television, chewing gum, and the ball- point pen . I see a lot of accommodation of & to successive generations brought up where reading skills were/ are relegated to a disused part of the psyche, in favour of the instant gratification of visual experiences. Does that make me 'simply old'....is it a generational thing? - I'm 66 years young...
