You can have thousands of books at your fingertips these days on a kindle or an iPad. Actually I’m thinking about getting one just now.MIKE STOKES | IT-FREEDOMPeople will certainly continue to buy books in the traditional way. I think that the electronic book market will develop alongside. There will always be a demand for copies of books to have them signed.ANNA OLDINGER | NOMURABook retailers may be affected by things like Kindle in the short term but they will never be completely redundant.

I can’t imagine parents reading to their children from a computer screen. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULL CITY VIEWS: WHAT IS THE OUTLOOK FOR BOOKSELLERS IN THE DIGITAL AGE ?
