The future of paper book
The future of libraries goes through a transformation of product offerings and rather than just sell books, they will have also to sell other entertainment items.
The owner of the largest chain of bookstores in Canada, Heather Reisman, took stock of the situation of book paper and the future of this sector. A report published in The Globe and Mail is very enlightening. Among the points of concern, we note that the income for an eBook is halved compared to paper books and at all levels, from the author, publisher, distributor, until the bookseller.
