It’s far from the death of eBooks. eBooks are a permanent part of the publishing industry, for sure. But what’s the next innovation? What’s the next mover? What’s going to come along to jumpstart it again? Publishers acknowledge that all you’ve really done so far is to put the text into a digital format.

    Well. In 2015 I read one physical book. I could not get it on my kindle or e pub .
    I love kindle – the background color, the size of the font, the light, the weight of the kindle, having hundreds of books with me.

    I just started to read on my phone. – when your kindle is not with you, your phone is.

    It is wave of the future. I am middle aged. And hope to get all of my books in e book format.
