You think it hasn't hit, that you're safe. But you're so very, very wrong. The Mayan's were right. Don't believe me? Look around you? Don't worry, I'll wait for your eyes to adjust to the 3-D world beyond your computer screen. See what I mean? No? Look again. See that woman across the table from you. Well, you can see the top of her head at least, because she's texting away. Then there's the boy at the next table over, his face alight with the glow of an ereader. In fact, everyone in the coffee shop is clutching some kind of device that they are staring vacantly into.
Oh yes, the apocalypse has indeed hit and we are merciless for we didn't even see it coming. And here I was all prepared with my shotgun and combat boots. But they are useless against the masses of techies that are ensnared within their electronic devices. For they are in a different world, a place shotgun shells don't reach. Everyone is updating profiles, reading eBooks, watching videos, texting, or surfing the internet. We are all connected, and yet we have never been more divided. Ripe for the picking.
Don't get me wrong, I'm as ensnared as you are and I quite like it in this new world of ours. But I do wonder, what will happen to the old one while we're away?
In all seriousness though, I'm curious, have you succumbed to the e-revolution? Do you own an ereader? What is your preference, hardback, paperback, or ebook?
