"What happened to your book stores?
Our libraries you mean? They were not any use without the printed paper we once used as currency.
Didn’t the people fight for them?
Of course not. Books became symbolic of shame, an expression of vulnerability, a signal to playground cowards that you were different. When the children stopped seeing value in the printed word, when they were drawn by the sterile smell of technology instead of the dust inscribed pages of novels, our volumes became worthless.
