Infographic: The Future of Books (Print vs Digital)

The Future of BooksThe following infographic was created by someone who still thinks that print and digital books are in an elimination battle which can have only one survivor.

That is a little 2012 for my tastes, but this infographic is entertaining nonetheless.


The Future of Books


About Nate Hoffelder (11466 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. I missed this when I first came out. I notice this doesn’t mention print on demand. I think if POD technology gets cheap enough, it could have an impact on keeping print going. Otherwise, I think what might happen is print becomes the medium for new books and best sellers and ebooks are for back list.

    As a self published author, I’d like to thank publishers for jacking up the prices of their ebooks and letting me compete.
