The Future is Today

I realized today that I wanted to re-read Watchman Nee's book Changed into his Likeness before teaching tonight. However, I don't own the book anymore - no idea where it went. I called three local bookstores, but they all wanted to order it for me. They wanted to charge around ten bucks and have it for me in ten days. That wasn't going to help me for tonight at all.

So I googled the book and found I was able to buy the book in e-book form in one minute for $3.25. A few days ago, a friend told me that books would be replaced by e-books in a few years. I passionately professed my loyalty to real books...until I needed one asap today. I'm a flip-flopping hypocrite.

I'd better go read my first e-book now...

Maybe it's time to go buy a Kindle? :-)
