From the Mouths of Babes: Books are Still Fun!

Published on October 2, 2013

This week, Frank visits St. Jude School in Waltham Massachusetts and talks to three wonderful young ladies about books. What do we learn? We find out that despite their having electronic devices, these youth still read books and will continue to do so. This one's cute factor goes to 11.

• It’s great to hear these young adults confirm what we at Xerox always have believed to be true: print is still very much alive. From iPhone apps and mobile devices to cloud computing at social media, digital has become more and more integrated in our everyday lives. Although digital proponents are quick to say that print is becoming extinct, I think you’ve shown here that printed materials, like books, remain a viable option for every generation. While digital and online media will continue to have a place in the world, studies have shown that the physical of paper helps create a greater connection in our brains than digital. Simply put, print creates a human connection – which touching a tablet screen cannot duplicate.
Just a few weeks ago at PRINT 13, a lot of the conversation in our booth revolved around how print is a viable communication medium. We’re continuing to chat about this online and would love for anyone else to weigh in! Just use the hashtag #PrintWins.
