I really like this infographic via Newsweek – no idea if all the facts are correct I’ll admit but I totally agree with the sentiment. I have a real interest in the idea of eBooks and digital publishing in general (let us be honest – my main interest is digital comics!) and in a few days I will receive my new Kindle and then in a couple of weeks I’ll finally get hold of my iPad. Will ownership of these gadgets change my reading habits? Almost certainly. Will I stop buying books (and comics) entirely? Really can’t see that happening any time soon. That said maybe if I revisit this topic in a years time I’ll have a very different view but I am one of those rare people who still buys newspapers rather than relying on the web or app versions so there remains a place in my hard for the experience of reading something that is print and pulp..
