Are books dead, and can authors survive? | Ewan Morrison | Books | guardian.co.uk

Excellent article on the future of the book

very pessimistic but seems to have a point.

My own feeling is that the way it will go will be books will be published which are really special physical objects. So books will become a souvenir. We read them electronically but true fans by the physical book (signed?) as an object to treasure with extra content?

The other thing is that like the music industry writers will move to live events and make money from other aspects of their work.
