Book Blogger Hop Halloween Edition! - October 12th - October 18th: The Longest Boxing Match in History Lasted for 276 Rounds

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: You are suddenly transported into a future time in which (horrors!) books are unknown. How would you explain books, and how wonderful they are, to the people of that time?

Is writing still known? Because if writing is still known, I think that books would be relatively easy to explain - something containing a lot of writing that usually has either a story or stories in it or contains explanations of factual information. This definition relies upon other concepts like "stories", "writing", and "information", and if those concepts have also been lost, then we will have to back up further and start with those. On the other hand, if humanity has lost the concept of what a "story" is, then they may be so far removed from what we regard as "human" that books would end up being impossible to explain. Anything short of that sort of disconnect would probably be possible to overcome.
