I have a strong feeling that book publishing as we know it, has changed forever.
As people become used to looking for books on Amazon and other online sources, and print on demand technology becomes more sophisticated, the dinosaur publishers and chain megastores will have to adapt or die.
Sure I still like wandering around Chapters or Barnes and Noble, but it is more like walking through a museum than an active exercise in book buying. Since I am interested primarily in metaphysical books, those stores rarely have anything that strikes my fancy.
For me, a small publisher, print on demand is the holy grail. For the author too, the rewards are potentially much greater.
The only thing I'm not too keen on is Kindle. I don't like the way Amazon can erase stuff on your Kindle without any notification. One day it's there, the next it's gone.
C'mon Apple, let's have your version.
