Re: Barnes & Nobel shrinking

I am on a library board, and we are trying to "vision" what the library should look like (metaphorically) 10 years from now. Few have gone bookless, but not necessarily successfully. I think it was futurism guru Ray Kurzweill who wrote how the resolution and usabiliy of the paper book are darned good technology. And many of us have been conditioned to like that method of info/story transmission. Even young people want to retain paper books. Amazon, iirc, sells more e- than paper, however.
