Talking and listening are replacing them.

I would have said social media - which does contain an element of reading & writing - is replacing everything.

My kids still love books.

Thank christ for that!  There seems (to me)  to be a tangible connection between a book and the brain which isn't emulated by a screen. 

or maybe I just got too attached to books when they were the only option.  I still love books, even though I seldom read them now.  That's down to eyesight more than loss of interest though.

Kids these days get rewarded 'for good behaviour' with a trip to Maccas or a new app,  I was given a book and treated them like winning an Olympic medal!  
Never read a book, even the Golden Books, that I didn't learn something from, no matter how trivial, there was never one that didn't produce something I didn't know before. 

People seem to be incapable of handling more than one sentence at a time these days.  But maybe I'm just outa the loop.

Funnily enough, books are holding their own and have made a strong comeback in recent years. Holding a Kindle just doesn't do it and physical book sales have recovered almost entirely.

Always plenty of kids at the library, so the printed word ain't dead just yet.

Nostalgia?

Shucks, i too love a real book. I hate reading on line. Makes my eyes buggy. Keeps me in proximity to the router system.

Some irony in this, as i recognize the value in eschewing paper and the cost of distribution of hard copy.

There is an almost poignant irony in it. Well spotted Stanky.
