People Are Still Talking About The Future of Books

The NPR show "On The Media" usually focuses on how the news is reported (or not reported, if appropriate). This past week's episode switched to a different medium: books. In addition to explaining the Kindle, it talked about how much of a difference Oprah and Amazon can make, and whether or not people are reading less as the recent NEA study discussed. Worth a listen.
