future books

Today on Google, I found out about a wonderful little contest as part of the launch of Google’s newest addition: Google books! It’s a wonderful search engine and archive of great literary classics, informational texts, and modern novels — all searchable and cross referenced!

As part of the launch Google has created a contest in which you can win great prizes with your most creative entry (50 words or less)¬†about what reading will be like in 100 years — here’s mine:

Future Books

While I anticipate
The modern advance
Of thousands of books
In the palm of your hand…

In 100 years I hope
There will still be
Those who find
A simple beauty

In the smell of ink,
The feel of paper
And a corner turned
To save the end for later.
