The truth? You can't handle the truth.

With thanks to a semi-young Jack and a not yet loco Tom Cruise

The book industry is currently in major limbo. None of us know what is going to happen in the next 3-5 years. Or beyond.

Big boys are in trouble. B&N is nearly done. Borders is gone already.

There is a very real chance for small places to assert their strength.

Yet, again, all of this is guess-work.

The book world quakes and shakes and re-configures.

And yet, I strongly believe, the book itself is not dead.

The e-book and the e-reader are waves of the future.

The book. The actual book. It remains and will not leave.
