Internet Vs. Books...

I've checked alot of sites and I noticed that the book industry is going down... There is a revolution of publishing via internet... For instance the E-book is an invention that most people are using nowadays and has become a major replacement of Real books. This way you can have your own library in this small electronic device thats coming in small and different shapes and forms...
Also, there is http://www.amazon.com/, http://www.packtpub.com/, http://www.ereadable.com/... which are websites that actually sell books online...

In addition there are:

-E-Bookstores: There are special e-bookstores that sell only e-books. These sites generally offer more information on the titles, authors, publishing houses, and provide e-book news and reviews.

-Publishing House Sites: Some publishing houses have set up sites to sell directly to you both print and electronic books. These include the Print-on-Demand publishers who print a copy of a book only after you've paid for it. They almost always offer electronic editions of these books, too.

There are alot of new ways for publshing and wherever you click while searching for a book you'll find Ads that say: "Are you an author? Looking for a publisher?"...

Who knows what the future holds for "Books"? Our children might not have to read in the future, maybe the information will be downloaded to their brain immediately:P

P.S: I was checking punlishing news and by chance visited a blog: http://bookpublishingnews.blogspot.com/. If anybody's interested in book publishing, you might like to check it out...

Hey..that's true!
But the pleasure of reading a book is an everlasting thing, the same thing applies fot the newspapers; I hate to read an e-newspaper..
Good luck!
