Thinking of something to say every day is already proving to be difficult, so I don't know how I'm going to keep it up for the rest of the year! *g*

Bought myself a nice new reading lamp today, for days when I'm reading a 'real book' and not my Kindle (which I use with the lighted cover) or my iPad. The majority of my reading is now done via Kindle or iPad, but I have to admit I still love the feel of a real book in my hands!

As convenient as e-readers/tablets/laptops are, I do feel that something is being lost now practically everything we own is being stored digitally. In years to come we'll have no actual physical things to remember our lives by - as everything will be stored in an iCloud somewhere! Gone will be the days of going through your grandparents attic and finding dusty old photographs or books. Instead we'll be leaving our grandchildren a link to our LJ (or maybe not for some of us? :P) or our Facebook pages. Our photographs and books will be in computer or online files, or stored in the aforementioned iCloud (whether that be Apple or some other well known manufacturer of iClouds *g*).

I love technology and everything it brings us (it brought me to all of you for a start!), but I do sometimes feel nostalgic for the things we've left behind. But that's just the way of the world, isn't it?
