The New Age of Literature

With new times come new change. Literature's migration to digital eBooks is inevitable. Although physical books have many benefits, soon all books will be published digitally. Hannah states that books provide an experience like no other, but so does an iPad. An iPad is just as "magical". A children enters a world of imagination when using an Ipad. They may not be able to turn every page but with a swipe of a finger they can experience a new page just in a different world. Ebooks are also more convenient. Students are now required to haul several books around school everyday but with the convenience of an iPad or Kindle, they would only need to carry an eBook. With its growing popularity, it's important to embrace the change. Not everyone may enjoy the digital experience, but soon it will be the main standard.

A Response to Ben Franklin

Hello Ben Franklin,
I just read your essay, Remarks Concerning the Savages of North America and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I find it very interesting in how you acknowledge the differences between Native American culture and American Culture with out belittling Native American culture. I was particularly fascinated by the diferences in education among Native American and American cultures. In American culture we see education as a source to brighten our intelligence but you explain education for Native Americans as a way to learn practical skills. Through your essay I learned the differing morals between Native Americans and Americans.
