The wolf is falling!

(get it? get it?)

Anyway, this is just depressing. So many details of it...

THE END: The book business as we know it will not be living happily ever after. With sales stagnating, CEO heads rolling, big-name authors playing musical chairs, and Amazon looming as the new boogeyman, publishing might have to look for its future outside the corporate world.


Brilliant article, and I'm just halfway through it.

The book industry will never die completely...it'll just evolve. We'll have books in one form or another (probably hard-bound AND digital) for a long time.

People like us, the book lovers and the writers and the people who love a story, have to...well, keep the faith. Somehow.

(Also, it amuses me that Von just commented to me that ":nentwined: has a great entry..." And that's the name I happily went to. Hello, slow learners!) :)
