Book Update

As The Age Of The Physical Book Retreats, The Cult Of The Physical Book Advances: Key Quote: "As the age of the physical book retreats, the cult of the physical book will advance. E books are much like canned food in the 1950s, new, convenient – and excitingly so. But as with food, taste and desire changes. There will be a point when how literature is produced and distributed and consumed becomes much more important to a great many people than simple convenience. In one sense, the point is already here: small bookstores are surviving where their big box rivals now fall like dinosaurs. What they have to offer the marketplace will only become more obvious as that market seems to shift further in the direction of digitization."
