Borders is just the first casualty. It's sad, we all love bookstores. But did you know that a huge swath of Americans never buy even one book per year? If you read this blog, you're likely not one of those Americans. You read books by the dozens. But then you buy most your books on Amazon.
Unfortunately, Barnes & Noble is next. And then some publishers who rely on these two bookstore chains to sell their products will go the way of the dinosaurs. It's just a matter of time.
Imagine a world where future books look nothing like books today. How will you stay engaged? How will you collect ideas? I suspect you're already solving this for yourself in a haphazard and experimental way. But who is solving this for everyone else?
