The future of the book is not necessarily secure. Although based on a long history, paper-based publishing is under attack from information technology, especially for younger readers. However, electronic book technology is difficult to maintain over time and unless resolved, this may be its death knell.
This paper compares paper and electronic book technology and concludes that unless electronic books break the nexus with format and technology, widespread acceptance, and hence commercial viability, may be a long way off.
