The Book of the 21st Century:
The supply is unlimited;
yet not a single copy goes to waste.
The book of the future is not made of paper and ink; instead, it's
made of bits and bytes, the digital building blocks of computer
The book of tomorrow is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year,
to anyone on the planet with a connection to the Internet, at a
fraction of the cost of a conventional book.
There is no paper or ink, binding, wrapping, postage, or costs for
transporting truckloads of heavy boxes from place to place.
It costs almost nothing to "ship" the book of the 21st century
anywhere in the world.
Not a single tree is felled in the manufacturing process. Not one
sheet of paper enters the waste stream, clogs a landfill or pollutes
the air after burning in a waste incinerator.
The supply is unlimited ... yet there are no unsold copies
left over. There are always exactly the right number of copies: one
for every reader.
Library patrons never need to wait for someone else
to return the book of the future. In fact, two different people -- or
200 people -- can read the same book at the same time, without looking
over anyone's shoulder!
The book of tomorrow will never wear out -- but if it somehow
becomes lost or damaged, it is easily replaced. The book of the
21st century is never "out of print." A book of 1,000 pages
can be stored in less space than a postage stamp.
The book of the future has built-in
links to pictures, to
links to websites. It is an active book, not a passive one. It can ask
the reader questions, and answer the reader's questions in return.
People with vision problems can easily enlarge type.
A student who needs to quote a passage can simply highlight the desired
text, copy it, then paste it to a book report.
The book of the 21st century does not need a Table of Contents, Glossary,
or even page numbers -- because readers can easily locate
references to any word or phrase using the built-in search functions
of their computers.
The book of the future is lighter, faster, smarter and cheaper than
the book of the present. It makes the world a better place for all
Why the book of the future benefits everyone:
- Because the book is made of bits and bytes instead of paper
and ink, it costs much less to make a new title available to a vast
worldwide audience. Publishers can take a chance on more new books,
without losing a fortune if some of them are unpopular.
- Because publishers can give more new writers a chance, writers can
write what they believe -- instead of writing what they think a
publisher can sell.
- Because writers can write what they believe, there's a greater
variety of new books available.
- Because there are more new books available, readers have a
wider selection, with something for everyone. And the books they
select cost less than ever before possible.
- Because books cost much less, readers can buy far more of them;
so authors can earn just as much --if not more-- than they did in
- Readers and writers both win, with more books by more writers,
lower prices than ever before possible, and more copies sold.
Ready for a surprise? The future is now.
