Books were the primary means of entertainment for most people throughout history, and when you think about it, most books were very expensive to buy. So, there was always a need to read as much as you could when you were reading, which is why most books had instant replay. I don't mean the video version, although there was an enormous amount of that. I'm talking about the text-to-speech technology that many companies are using these days for their books.

The ability to make books sound like they're being read by somebody with a voice that you know intimately and who can't be fooled by tricks, and can tell if what the book is telling is completely true or not. This is what made books great. They have all the advantages of having instant replay on television, but they're still different from televisions because they don't have cameras and microphones and they're not going to be on a channel that broadcasts sporting events. You've probably been able to see the difference between a written book and a television program; if you haven't, just open your dictionary.
