A Newbie’s Guide to Publishing: The Changing Face of Publishing

We might be looking at the beginning of the end of print.

Naturally, people are bemoaning this. Here are some of the things I’ve heard so often, they’re becoming cliches:

  • I love print books
  • I’ll never get rid of my book collection
  • I enjoy seeing a book on the shelf
  • I like the tactile experience of paper
  • Print books don’t run out of batteries
  • Ebooks hurt my eyes
  • Ereaders are fragile and too expensive
  • I love the smell of paper books

Every time I read the word “I love the smell of paper books,” I get this image in my head of someone taking big huff on their copy of “The Correction” when no one is looking.
