eBooks

 

It seems the future of actually READING books may be in electronic format.  The delivery is instant, and you can save money - especially on those books you only want to skim or read once. 

 

While book-reading devices are all-the-rage right now, I'm sure people will soon figure out that they can just as easily read their books on their laptops or phones - which they are already carrying around everywhere, anyway, which eliminates the need to carry one more thing. Environmentalists should be happy, because e-books are paperless.

 

There will still be a need for "real" books, obviously.  Some people, who are already feeling eye strain from staring at a computer screen all day will want to give their eyes a rest.  People who value books as "collectible," will continue to want beautiful hard-cover editions of their favorites - as will those who simply use books as decoration (either for interior decorating, or for impressing their friends with their supposed intelligence - ha!).
