The book is not dead: but long live the book | FutureBook:

There are few publishing analysts like Philip Jones prepared to take a knife and cut through the media crap pedaled about the doom and gloom in publishing and the imminent demise of ‘the book’. This is another first class piece he has written for FutureBook….

“At times it seems that every journalist or news editor want to break the news that the “book is dead”, rather than reporting on the slightly more complicated reality that the book is evolving. That reading is in rude health, but the supply chain from author to reader is being disrupted by, as you’d expect, the growth in a new medium.”
