    Glad you liked it, Terri! I’m such a book nerd. Love this sort of thing.

    So involved! I’m impressed. The workers treat the books with reverence and respect, as if they’d written themselves. Like this a lot!

    As I was watching this from my iPad, I couldn’t help but think that I was watching the birth of a book on one of many devices that will be the death of books.

    I don’t think books will ever die, Donna. But I do think how we’re reading them is changing. I think there will always be print books (and there should be) but they’ll likely be more scarce than they are now. These days publishers reserve their “big” titles for hardback. I imagine something similar will happen with books. The ones that are anticipated to be big sellers will make it to print while most others go straight to e-book. But it’s just a theory (and a poorly informed one at that). I do know that when people like you and I (the book lovers) buy books they’ll always be around.

    Thanks for stopping by, Donna. And thanks for your comment! Definitely food for thought.
