When I think of summer time reading, it’s usually me sitting a the beach with a book. If, however, you read the Sunday, July 10, 2011 issue of PARADE Magazine in your local paper, you’ll see an article about summer reading that features a picture of a young boy sitting under a tree with his dog and his eReader. I suddenly felt very old. As technology changes and becomes more affordable, I can see the younger generations reading eBooks as the norm.
What that means for the publishing world I can only guess. I know that I don’t always feel comfortable taking my Kindle into the tub with me. What if I drop it?
How do you feel about eBooks versus printed? Do you see them becoming the norm? What impact do you think this will have on the publishing industry?
