    1. A great read, from Brian O Leary s great opening article Context, Not containers untill the readers bill of rights by Kassia Krosser.To be honest, only 6 articles really caught my attention, which is not a problem since you can skim through the other parts without missing out To me the other 12 parts felt like a bonus.The articles that did matter gave me great insight in some publishing startups, the consequences of DRM and the interdependencies between publishers and e reader software The manif [...]

    2. McGuire s the founder of LibriVox Awesome Looking forward to reading of this and all the subsequent updates.

    3. I first heard about this book on the CBC podcast radio show Spark episode 190 Rituals, Reality, Reading and started reading it for free, online at bookessbooks

    4. This is, as the subtitle promises, a book of essays Consequently there s no central theme essayists explore the future of the book from the vantage point of their own piece of the publishing industry I found the most value in the overall rather than the specific essays It is time to see publishing as a whole newspapers, magazines, and books as part of a disrupted continuum Digital makes convergence not only possible it has made convergence inevitable Marketers have become publishers, publishers [...]

    5. Part 1 The SetupMixed bag of essays aimed for the most part at medium to large scale publishing houses whose outmoded production model is in flux While much of the content is of little use to indie authors and other content creators, the overall discussion of the changing landscape of publishing is informative and enlightening if often pedantic and heavy handed.Of most value and interest for myself as an author and independent publisher were Liza Daly s essay on What We Can Do with Books which d [...]

    6. I enjoyed reading this book, and many of the chapters still hold up well over the time which has passed since publication This is a rapidly changing area Some of the chapters were worth fives stars, but some others changed this view The diverse chapters provide an over view of possible futures for books, based on current information It is not a book of scenarios, but of extrapolations from current behaviour.

    7. Books and e books are differentWhat is the difference paper books have been continued to read than 2000 years.It has been released current e books.Many avid readers hate e books.There are several functions of e book reader that paper books cannot be.E books have the future of every books.I expect them.

    8. Great survey of some threads currently unraveling in the publishing world The book is a few years old at this point but many of the articles are still relevant and the issues they address are in the same place they were years ago.

    9. Lots of the articles felt like must reads for emerging digital issues in publishing impressive Also free Some duds.
