Can the humble book really be improved upon?
Some say printed words have been responsible for the Renaissance, religious reformations and revolutions. Now, books, pamphlets and newspapers are experiencing a revolution of their own – the electronic revolution.
Mini libraries on the go
Every year, electronic books are capturing more and more of the printed page market – and for some good reasons. The first and most obvious is the huge capacity that an e-book reader has. With this hand-held gadget – no bigger than an ordinary hardcover book – you can carry around bookshelves worth of books under your arm!
What's to read?
In addition to thousands of classic titles, the amount of new, instantly available digital material is impressive and growing. For example, 100 of the 112 titles on the current New York Times bestseller list are available in e-book editions – at less than their hardcover prices. And now, e-book readers are being coupled with wireless technology to provide access to an even greater selection, including daily newspapers and weekly magazines.
Don't resist the revolution! E-books are here to stay!
