So is this really the future of books?


Okay, Nelson looks pretty cool. Coupland would be good for universities. Alice could find a niche market, though surely good fiction has always been immersive?

  1. I think Nelson would be a good resource for students, especially because it provides the ability to check up on resources. I also like the looks of Coupland for business or higher education.

    Alice, however, does not appeal to me at all. I think you are right that it would have to find a niche, because good literature does not need all of the excessive frills.

    I am really glad you posted this link! It was a very interesting way to envision some of the possible changes we might see in publishing over the next few years.
