Are Bookshelves Heading toward Obsolescence?

September 21, 2011

This slightly tongue-in-cheek article in today’s Chicago Trib poses the question that’s been on everyone’s minds since the surge in eReader popularity: What the heck do you put on your bookshelves when all you have are downloaded eBooks? And that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how culture will change when phrases like “throw the book at him” morph into “throw the Nook at him!”

Give yourself a chuckle (and perhaps a small sigh of dismay) at all the changes down the digital road that author and Second City performer Marla Caceres predicts.
