Behold: a future of print and digital reading
by Kevin Murphy
Try as they might, tech companies have a hard time being objective when it comes to the future of books and reading. Many of them have been digging graves for print books for nearly a decade now. But despite the major shifts in reading habits, most experts agree that the future of reading will not be done solely on ereaders, but rather in a hybrid fashion that includes both print and digital formats.
So it is heartening to see a tech/social media company like Mashable publish an infographic illustrating a future that has room for books and ereaders, and ways in which the two might cohabitate.
