The book is dead?

The world of books is changing. For how much longer do you think paper books will be published? Will you be buying a digital tool (eg the Kindle, iPad, Nook) specifically to read electronic books (e-books)? How many books will be published in electronic form only, within the next year? What might be the advantages and disadvantages of e-books?

The world-renowned futurist, Nicholas Negroponte believes the book (as we know it) will be dead in 5 years.

If you love the feel and look of traditional paper books, you may appreciate this book trailer for Lane Smith's new picture book - It's a Book. There are some things that a traditional book simply can't do...

Now, with the end of the year fast approaching, there are a number of our beloved paper books that need to be returned - we'd love to have them back as soon as possible. We need to take good care of these treasures so please bring them back safely to Karen in the next day or two. Thank you!
