The most powerful computer

I often am amazed that in this day and age books are still so popular. When you think about it they were the first form of escapism. Then along came cinema, but books remained. Then along came radio and tv, but books still remained. Then along came the home computer, consoles and tablets, books adapted to ebooks and remained.

Why? Why with all these other forms of entertainment do books still enthral us? My theory is because books utilise our own imagination. We create the images in our heads when we read the books and these use the most powerful computer on the planet - the human brain. That's the secret of books.
