The Future of Books

For those of you who are avid readers or have librarian leanings, here is an interesting article from The Economist on The Future of Books
The biggest advantage I see to digitizing books is that it could make nonfiction, technical books much shorter by, as the article says, actually making a book that should be 50 pages 50 pages instead of 250 in order to make the book marketable. Then again I have a soft spot for long books, so that make not be such as good thing.
