But with the fast-approaching digital age, Linda realises that she has become like one of the dinosaurs that her son loves so much.

Computers are sprouting everywhere around her, and she can’t get herself to even touch one.

She prefers to touch and smell her books, and staring into the empty box just doesn’t do it for her.

But she knows that if she doesn’t want to end up like the dinosaurs, she needs to adapt.

Even though she will never let go of her love for books, she needs to find a way to incorporate it with technology.
