A great video for those of you living in fear of digital publishing:

Like it or not, digital publishing is here to stay. The movie and music industries went through it, and now it’s our turn.

Adapt or die.

    While the masses may move towards a more digital publication system and I see the use of items like the Kindle being more popular and wide spread in society in the coming years I just do not believe that the publishing companies will go 100% digital. I have several friends who have a digital readers and while they like them and use them regularly they all say the same thing “It just does not FEEL like a book.” And they continue to purchase non-digital books.

    In that same light, Clay Jenkinson who protrays Mr. Jefferson, has a Kindle and stated this week on “The Jefferson Hour” that while he also has a Kindle and uses it regularly, especially when traveling, he still purchases “Bound” books.

    I believe that eventually there will come a balance between Digital and Print much like the balance with the music industry and folks like collectors and stogy ‘ol goats like me will continue to purchase the bound books and the collectors editions and even occasionally that limiteds along side the lettered editions.

    NOW GET OFF MY LAWN!!!!

      Actually, I completely agree. Bound books aren’t going anywhere. Things will change with them, but there will always be people buying bound books.

      It just amuses me all the people resisting e-books, saying it’s just a fad, or that nobody reads them and they’ll never make money. It’s ridiculous.
