Graveyard of books
The first iPads have been sold and we are supposed to enter a new era of media consumption. No longer shall we read stories from crappy paper. From now on, words and sentences shall shine from flatt glass plates! Desirable future? Just imagine how the book markets would look like; bookmarkets like the one above, at the river Saone in Lyon. Exactely, there wouldn’t be any bookmarkets anymore! What should the booksellers put into the boxes? A bunch of used iPads?
