WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- I'm a book lover from way back but here's what I've noticed: for most of us at least, convenience may trump love.

Here's what I'm talking about: I loved going to record stores and it is not like I ever actually decided to stop going to Tower Records or Circuit City. I just looked up one day and I was ordering my Cd's online and then downloading digitally and then Tower and most of the music stores were gone. Think about it! 

Did you consciously decide to abandon the beloved corner Blockbuster or did Netflix and On demand just make it too easy to get your movies at home?

Lets Be Real: Books are for everyone. But having the actual time and energy to go somewhere to buy one? I'm thinking sooner rather than later that's gonna be only for those few folks too loyal or too stubborn to change.
