What's next for the book?

So I'm writing a book about the future of the book. Not simply the shift to the e-book, if it happens, but rather an investigation of the physical/material and the digital book; the places we read; the business models and the bookish things around books.

If there's anything about books, and their future, that seem obvious to you, let me know.

As a writer and reader, I've always had an emotional relationship with books. So it's hard, as you see the shutters coming down in publishing, not to fear that your cherished voice is about to be extinguished along with many others. I know this is a time of opportunity but it's also a time of great apprehension.

So I think it's great that you're writing your book about it all Robin.
