Requiem for the Book

Pile of booksA couple of weeks ago, I tore an article out of our local newspaper – Requiem for a Book was written by Llewellyn King.

He talks about what he sees as the inevitable extinction of the physical book – he considers technology the guilty party. While I’m not convinced that books are going away (I sure buy enough of them), I do worry about it.

And for what it’s worth, I like technology.

The following sentence in his article grabbed my attention:

When the book finally succumbs to life only among the electrons, gone will be not only the book but also the printer, the binder, the shipper and the bookseller.

I assume that he’s referring to folks involved in the publishing industry, but just in case:

Hell no. I’m not going anywhere.
