At this time of year, I indulge in one of my favorite pastimes: browsing bookstores. The theory is that I'm looking for gifts for friends and family, while the reality is that I also end up at the till with books for me. Guessing that most of us are bibliophiles, I thought you'd be interested in the above article. The link is to a publisher's view of the future of the book publishing industry. The link takes you to "The death of traditional book publishing"; there is a link from there to another post by the same publisher, which responds to responses to the earlier post. While I've embraced technology for work purposes to a large degree, I still maintain there is a role for traditional hardcopy books in legal research. That is even more true for personal reading pleasure…Comments?
