The life and death of books

“The printed book’s main enemy is not the digital book, but the games and social networks that gross billions of dollars today.  (…) We are not watching the end of the book-form, but its continued support in another platform, as notes Umberto Eco, for whom the book is a definitive invention. (…) The conviction remains that the book will not die but will gain new and expanded boundaries.”

Arnaldo Niskier, Brazilian journalist and writer
