The buzz in the publishing world, especially with the IPad now out, is that E-books will eventually rule and maybe completely replace real, paper bound books. Do you ever see that happening? Could the conversation in this video ever take place in the future?
I have my doubts that real books will ever be fully replaced and the shelves of libraries emptied into hand-held computers. Sure, electronics will make some books more accessible. Reference books may become easier to navigate through electronics. Pop fiction will be easier to obtain, read, and dispose. But the allure of real books will never completely go away.
