End of physical book reading. I am in the generation get used for the physical book reading. The chance for let you had the opportunity direct using highlighter to comment and flip those pages anyplace you want, and enjoy reading without other form of distraction, that for me is kind of important relaxation session, maybe with the cup of coffee.
Just like everyone be aware, physical book sales is decline due to online media, and people get use for the micro news update form of reading habit. Lot of physical bookstore is downsizing or complete out from the business. For those who are left over, some is transform into total learning experience and space, they are no just selling book, but provide solution. Grouping related book into well craft and design bookshelf. Offer stationary and other complementary product. They offer cafe and encourage you spend more time inside book store. Ongoing organized book author seminar and sharing session or workshop.
Online store offer keyword search and send the book you want to your doorstep, or offer ebook version for your download. You can even reading it in any device you carry or possess. Not to mention now even offer monthly subscription for certain fee, you are feel free to download and read any books you want. World is transform in the very fast speed in the digital economy.
Despite all those changes, I continue to maintain the book reading habit, maybe no like previous in term of volume, but I do enjoy reading for learning, for pleasure, for enjoyment, for inspiration.
End of physical book reading? I still recall a scene from the movie Suicide Squad despite in the jail, Harley Quinn enjoy her book reading with a cup of coffee. Similar scene and context we can see it at cafe and coffee shop. Book reading never die.
