eReaders have many advantages over paperbacks and although Amazon would have you believe that eBooks are leading the way, the paperback is far from dead and we look at both sides of the debate.

Harriet I am exemplary yard as long be different adjective arts I have a have a candle on the left and and people books on the rate and it will make sense in just a moment to the listeners why that matters so hold that thought the preamble I had some feedback yard during the week that my preambles again long so here's a short short short version once again live streaming show go to distortion.com/live UNIX as a stream and a chat room there is now possible to see list of topics undercover in the show in coming weeks and months of extortion.com/topics if you're not a member you will be able to see the list but if you sign up you to vote on the existing list and also suggest whatever topic you like covered on the show beyond that I'll be looking episodes a week ahead of time maybe two and people consider topic and co-host or guest host details plan for the next coming few episodes is an opportunity for business to guide where the show goes in terms of topics and whilst I do get plenty of emails and suggestions and requests there has been an easy way up until now to gauge if it's just one or two people instead of topic or if they're part of a vocal minority and lots of people want to cover a specific topic so now you can tell me what you want quickly and easily and everyone else that is interested can let me know if they like those topics as well so those new features alive on the site right now don't wait go and check them out there again how's that good less than 60 seconds not that I was timing at okay so we can talk about a listener voted topic this is the most popular topic as voted by the listeners and Corsicana gave away maybe well partly what it was so were somewhat as was the topic tonight and Vic e-readers versus paper exactly and specifically when I say paper I want to be fair about this and the problem is that there are so many different kinds of paper so how my gunner I guy we have to narrows down we can't just talk about the newspaper we collate newspaper arm you know hardcover books paper paperback books arm you know textbooks scrolls you know partner now we quickly got narrows down so onyx stick with the most popular kind of book arm that's made out of paper and that's a paperback so specifically will focus on novels I think because paperback novels are the most common and wet e-books obviously novels are the most common thing you'll find is an e-book so textbooks get more popular because our butts you and and of course of the people of hardcover is because they're hard wearing but you know there are some expensive so paperbacks versus paperback books versus e-readers fight okay vendors could be a cage match unprepared maybe is not maybe caged matters of his strong again so of course it is pragmatic service that comes in history amount I got up on gunner okay so arm when there was scrolls then there were books the newspapers then paperbacks then computer screens now tablets and e-readers they all convey exactly the same content but the differences of the visual the tactile olfactory experience in the subtly different for each of those different things so the said with a focus on paperbacks versus e-readers but so far as paperback books go exactly the mid-1800s in the UK when steam powered presses and pulp mills made book manufacturing lot more economical and wider distribution drove the costs down so the removal hardcover obviously also reduce the cost of manufacturing the sacrifice of some durability but most people want your the cheaper book so German publisher called albatross our books is usually given the credit for creating the so-called mass-market paperback that was in the early 1930s but it was actually Penguin books in the UK that was in 1935 and they took essentially most of the ideas from Mark albatross books and Dar may then of course well it sort of dovetailed with World War II are and they ended up so you as in Germany sort of got sidetracked and INA and am kickstarting a paperback revolution so Penguin books is sort of the paperwork with the main driving force behind that so anyway on the e-readers side of things a lot of people think it was Amazon that had the first e-reader but it wasn't to know what was I do night okay I was actually quite surprised because I realise it was Sony arm i.e. I knew it was Amazon on but it was actually Sony and a Sony leap livery ally IRA are that was the first commercial E Ink screen reader now that wasn't the first e-reader and certainly was the first being e-reader however it was the first commercial one that was widely distributed and successful so the sad part is how long before the Kindle was that our early Kindle was only a little bit are a few years after that but it was not the year but that the thing it's interesting is the Kindle has just run over everything and now at the sad thing is that Sony announced in August that they discontinue production of their area so there are that's their bedtime is gone force from from Sony anyway so it's kind of examiner happens but you know Amazon has just dominated yet than the look still at okay but not as good the Kindle is just now fighting rings anyway aura so I guess some it's not one of things I really want to wire to do is start with beyond that is the sum of statistics in oh and I guess it's arm I know what happened this but I know there are lies damned lies and statistics and there are so many statistics out there I am not kidding and you can you can well imagine how much there is out there about arm i.e. no e-books are dared all you no e-books are dared in or real books are agreeable to dental they're not dead and every single contingent of people who with a vested interest to publish statistics proving and disproving what's going on in the market so we have to start just quickly with Amazon and I met a bunch of capital get to a minute… For the moment look at that the figures from 2010 so in 2010 they reported that the paid books so first of all that is not include free e-books to 1/3 of all paperback book sales arm sorry hang on to rephrase that one third of all pay per book sales that hardcover plus paperbacks arm so one third of all the book sales were arm were paper books now 15% are of all of their sales were hardcover books 40% were paperbacks 45% were e-books now since then paperback paper-based books have slipped even lower than that no statistics sound pretty damning writer sound like e-books are well and truly the winner their outer head right but the you have to keep in mind is that Amazonian online retailer that you access via an Internet capable device and that raises the bar for a lot of people in a it I don't care how silly that sounds but yet there are still a lot of people that you that are not on the Internet I'm sorry but if there is an even and even being on the Chronicle on the net is not actually guarantee that they can again combining from Amazon labour know Amazon is all that they even have Neo so you had let were looking at a subset already in that and a subset of the public, population Internet access arm is a subset and that subset you got people actually care and know about Amazon caravan Amazon so of those subsets within that those figures that's when I would come from so bottom line is the vast majority population don't AND SAYING THAT THESE NUMBERS REPRESENT EVENTING IS KIND OF LIKE SAYING LET'S SAY TWO THIRDS OF PEOPLE THAT VISITED THE CHEMISTS DOOR THE DRUGSTORE LAYBY CAME AWAY WITH MEDICINE FUNNY THAT THERE IS A VERY LIMITED SAMPLE AND IT'S A BIASED SAMPLE OF THE EXACTLY SO TAKE THAT WITH NOT JUST ONE BUT MANY GRAINS OF SALT 18 ENOUGH SO AGAIN WAS FAR MORE INTERESTING IS A STUDY IN 2013 OF ADULTS WHICH IS 18 YEARS AND OLDER ALL THAT IS DEBATABLE TO BE ON HIS B-2 AND OR IN ON HONESTLY SOME STATES IN THE US AS WELL AS NEVADA I THINK THAT I CAN SEE YOU NOW TO HAVE 21 SONY CAN'T GAMBLE ANYWAY AS LONG STORY ARM AND I AND DOZEN US AND THEY FOUND IN THAT STUDY THAT OF ALL THE PEOPLE THAT HAD READ AT LEAST ONE BOOK IN THE PREVIOUS YEAR SO IS NOW TAKING OUT ALL THE PEOPLE THAT HAVEN'T ACTUALLY WRITTEN SO THAT THERE WAS ACTUALLY PERCENT OF THE POPULATION THE DIN HAD READ READ BOOK ONE BOOK IN THE PREVIOUS YEAR BUT OF THE PEOPLE THAT HAD 1/4 OF THEM HAD READ AN E-BOOK INTERESTINGLY 1/10 OF THEM HAD LISTENED TO AN AUDIOBOOK INTERESTING THE REST OF THEM WHICH IS THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY HAD READ A PAPER BOOK NOW PAINTS A VERY DIFFERENT PICTURE THAT SAID YOU REWIND THAT 510 YEARS YOU AND THERE WERE NO E-BOOKS SO CLEARLY E-BOOK IS RISING UP BUT IT IS CERTAINLY NOT DOMINANT NOT BY ANY STRETCH THE IMAGINATION HOWEVER THAT THE THING I SAID IS THAT YOU KNOW OF THAT PERCENTAGE WHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLE HAD READ A BOOK INTERESTING STATISTIC NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CON TOPIC IS EPISODE BUT YOU KNOW WHAT ONE QUARTER OF THE ADULT US POPULATION HAD NOT READ A BOOK AT ALL IN THE PREVIOUS YEAR SADLY ENOUGH SURPRISED BY THAT WELL I THINK IT'S PRETTY NEAR ITS IT'S IN AND I DON'T THINK THAT'S THE US THING AT ALL I THINK THAT THAT'S A DO IT IS A WESTERN CULTURE THING I THINK THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SPENDING ARM A LOT OF TIME DOING OTHER THINGS THERE WHICH IS A SHAME REALLY BUT ANYWAY AURA YOU GET THERE IN A TWITTER PODCAST TV MOVIES I DON'T THINK TOO MUCH INTO STATISTICS NESTLING IN THE SHADOWS IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A LOOK AT IS REALLY FASCINATING TO READ THROUGH ALL THE DIFFERENT DEMOGRAPHICS AND YOU LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE OUR PEOPLE AND THERE IT THERE APPEARS TO BE SOME RELATION BETWEEN PEOPLE AND SPEND TIME ONLINE AND ACTUALLY READING MORE BOOKS WHICH IS IN INTERESTING BITS ARM YATES DOESN'T PROVE ANYTHING IT'S JUST INTERESTING ARM THE LAST INTERESTING STATISTIC IS ONE DIMENSION THOUGH IS THAT MORE WOMEN READ BOOKS THAN MEN DO IN A LOVELY SO ARM THE PROBLEM IS ALTHOUGH STATISTICS IT IS ALL ABOUT OUR QUOTE WEBSTER'S AS YOU DO STATISTICS YOU'D LIKE BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT THERE IS A LOT OF CONFLICTING DRIVERS THAT PUSH E-BOOKS POPULARITY IN SALES AND ADOPTION AND SO ON ASSIST YOU EIGHT SO I DON'T GO ANY MORE ON GALLARDO I GO ON ANY MORE ABOUT STATISTICS I JUST WANT FOCUS ON THE TECHNOLOGY BECAUSE YOU EIGHT OR WE TAKE AWAY FROM THIS IS E-BOOKS HAVE COME ALONG WAY AND IN 10 YEARS THEY'VE COME FROM WHAT ESSENTIALLY NONEXISTING TO BEING A REASONABLY DECENT SIZE CHUNK OF BOOK OF NOVEL CONTENT CONSUMPTION IN IN IN IN A DECADE IN ANOTHER DECADE I EXPECTED THE NUMBERS WILL BE MUCH MUCH STRONGER AGAIN BUT IT'S GONNA TAKE A LONG TIME BEFORE E-BOOKS ARE ACTUALLY THE DOMINANT UPPER PORTION I THINK STATISTICALLY OF HOW THAT CONTENT IS CONSUMED BUT IS NO QUESTION IT'S HEADING THAT WAY DOES DON'T LISTEN AMAZON WHEN I TELL YOU YEAH IT'S JUST THE BEST IT'S SO POPULAR IT'S DO KICK IN BUT WILLIAM WITHIN REASON OR WAS AN HANGAR HAS AMAZON REPORT STUFF ARM YATES IS DOING REALLY WELL GOOD AND I NUMBERS ARE AGREED WITHOUT ANY NUMBERS YET YET EXACTLY OKAY TO OUR NEXT NEXT NEXT NEXT NEXT NEXT WHISTLE ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY AND YOU HAVE TO START WITH THE WEIGHT AND I WILL LOOK AT AND IT IS THIS PART WAS A LITTLE BIT DIFFICULT TO RESEARCH BECAUSE I CAN'T SAY TO YOU GOING BY SELF PAPERBACK NOVEL NOW TELL ME HOW MUCH IS IT WAY BECAUSE YOU THINK THERE IS NO STANDARD OR RATHER THERE IS BUT THERE'S NOT IS NOT A THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT SIZED PAPERBACK NOVELS AND I DON'T JUST MEAN THE X AND Y DIMENSIONS HEIGHT WIDTH I'M ALSO TALKING ABOUT THE THICKNESS THE DEBT THE NUMBER OF PAGES THE LENGTH IS VARIABLE NIGHT AWAY THE WEIGHT OF EACH INDIVIDUAL PAGE EXACTLY ME ALL ABOUT ADDS UP MAKES IT EXTREMELY HARD TO GENERALISE BUT FORTUNATELY THERE IS A LINK IN THE SHOW NOTES TO SOMEONE WHO HAD MORE SPARE TIME AND I DO THAT ACTUALLY GET IS RESEARCH THANK YOU VERY MUCH SO IR PLUCKED A COUPLE THAT I THOUGHT WERE IN THE SORT OF SIZE REGION AND I'M LOOKING AT SIZE REGION I'M LOOKING AT IS SOMETHING THAT IS COMPARABLE TO EITHER A KINDLE BAR PAPERWHITE LET'S SAY OR AN IPAD THERE ARE MANY THAT SORT OF PHYSICAL SIZE SO SLIGHTLY SMALLER TO A ROUNDABOUT THAT SIZE MAY BE SLIGHTLY LARGER SO I PICKED A COUPLE FOR EXAMPLE IS THE FIRST ONE DIMENSIONS IN INCHES 6.5 X 9 1/2 BY HALF AN INCH HUNDRED 60 PAGES AND IN MILLIMETRES THAT'S ONE 65 X 2 40 X 13 MM AND THAT WADE 15 OUNCES OR 425 G THE SAME RESULTS WITH A'S WITHERED WITH A DIP WITH A DIFFERENT DIMENSION BOOK ARE 9.5 X 6 X 1 OUR PASSENGERS AND ARE IN MILLIMETRES TO 40 X 1 50 X 25 MM 370 PAGES ALSO 15 OUNCES FOR A 25 G TO DIFFERENT AVERAGE FORM FACTORS WITH THE SAME WEIGHT IN PAPERBACK NOVEL IS PRETTY TYPICAL NOW NOW LET'S LOOK AT HOW MUCH ARE A KINDLE PAPER ONE HOUR I I'M QUITE A KINDLE PAPERWHITE I REALISE THERE ARE MANY KINDLES AGAIN ON THE CAN LIST THEM ALL THIS IS NOT THE ONLINE I TAKE THE KINDLE AND ENDURE LIKE A DIFFERENT AREA FOR THE IPHONE DOORMAT FOR THE KINDLE HOW ARE LIKE IN EPISODE ONE ARE NOT ON THE DOORMAT AGAIN BUT I'M ON CLINICAL PAPERWHITE BECAUSE WE OWN ONE HOUR MY WIFE OWNS ONE AND I'VE USED IT AND IT'S NICE BUT A KIT I LIKE IT HOWEVER ARM ITS FIRST GENERAL ITS DIMENSIONS ARM 169 MM ARE BY 11 7 X 9.1 IT WEIGHS OUR 215 G – THE WI-FI PLUS 3G MODEL AND IS IN IN NORTH AMERICA IS FIGURE 7.6 OUNCES SO ALREADY KINDLE PAPERWHITE IS LIGHTER THAN 2 TO 2 PAPERBACKS I MENTIONED AND SIGNIFICANTLY DON'T LITERALLY HALF THE WEIGHT THAT NEXT REALLY I RAN IPAD MINI OR WHAT OAKLEY OFFERED ME THREE NOW THE NEW ONE I JUST I REALLY HATE IT WHEN APPLEBY NOAH RENAMED NUMBER THINGS AFTER THE FACT CAR CALLING IN OUR READ, AND THAT'S THE EXPRESSION NOW WHATEVER OKAY SO THE DIMENSIONS OF THE NEW ONE PULLED STRAIGHT FROM APPLE'S WEBSITE IR 7.87 X 5.3 X 0.29" WHICH IS 200 X 1334.7 X 7.5 MM AND IT WOW WEIGHS 12 OUNCES OTHERWISE KNOWN AS 341 G SO CLEARLY IT IS NO BIGGER AND HEAVIER THAN A KINDLE PAPERWHITE NOT BY MUCH IN TERMS OF THE DIMENSIONS BUT CERTAINLY MORE IN THE WEIGHT IT'S OVER 100 AND THINGS HUNDRED AND 20 G MORE THAN A PAPERWHITE THAT IS NOT SURPRISING CONSIDERING FIRST OF ALL THE MATERIALS IS MANUFACTURED FROM AND SECOND OF ALL WHILE JUST PHYSICALLY LARGER AS IN ITS TALLER AND AND SLIGHTLY WIDER SO IN ANY CASE IT STILL LIGHTER THAN THOSE PAPERBACKS NOW PEOPLE GO SAY WELL YOU KNOW I HAVE THIS GREAT PAPERBACK NOVEL ABOUT LIKE ON A BUNCH DINOSAURS THAT THEY MADE IN EIGHT PEOPLE AND STOP THERE ANYWAY AND IT'S IT'S LIKE DIFFERENT DIMENSIONS AND WE OKAY SURE BUT YOU KNOW THE GENERALLY GENERALLY WHAT I'VE FOUND IS THAT THE BOOKS I'VE LOOKED AT THE NOVELS I PAPERBACK NOVELS I'VE LOOKED AT OUR YEAR THERE ALL EITHER EQUAL OR HEAVIER AND USUALLY THE HEAVIER THAN A PAPERWHITE SO THAT'S THAT LEASES THE NEXT INTERESTING CONCLUSION NO MATTER HOW LONG THE BOOK IS AND HOW THICK IT IS THE MATTER HOW BIG OR SMALL THE FONT IS YOUR E-READER IS ALWAYS GONNA WEIGH THE SAME AMOUNT YOU ALWAYS IT'S OYSTER HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF ARM FATIGUE NOW I GOT THE STEVE JOBS BIOGRAPHY AS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT A FEW YEARS BACK YOU WALTER ISAACSON'S IT'S A HARDCOVER AND SDS HAVE THE EDIT I MEAN AVA CARPIO MYSELF YOU I GOT WHAT NINE CHAPTERS IN AND YOU KNOW WHAT I STOP READING IT I NEVER FINISHED IT AND IT WASN'T BECAUSE IT WAS NECESSARILY A BAD BOOK ALTHOUGH I'M SURE JOHN SYRACUSE WOULD HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT THAT LATELY ADULT EPISODE ABOUT THAT HE ACTUALLY HAD TO BUT NEVER MIND THE WRONG GUY HYPERCRITICAL LOOK IT UP IT'S WHAT AT THE LEVEL OF THE CRITICAL EPISODES I'M I'VE LISTENED TO THAT MULTIPLE TIMES I JUST LOVE ANOTHER ONE ANYWAY IRRESPECTIVE POINT IS THAT THAT THING WAS SO DAMNED HEAVY AND OTHER TIMES WAS READING AND I WAS DOZING OFF AND WHEN I THINK IT'S IN THE FACE WE DOZE OFF SIMON IN LISA HI HAVE BEEN INJURED LESS BY MY IPAD FOR MY DAMN FACE THAN A STUPID BOOK SO HERE WE GO STRAIGHTAWAY IN A I THINK E-READER IS ALREADY AHEAD IN TERMS OF ARM FATIGUE AND FRANKLY IT'S ONLY GOING TO IMPROVE

GAME THAT WE KNEW NEW KINDS OF PLASTIC THAT THEY USED TO THAT OF THE LIGHTER ON KINDLES YOU ARE NOT IPAD SAVED THEM GO THEY'RE CURRENTLY USING A MINIUM WELL THEY COULD TRY DIFFERENT ALLIES I GO TO

FAMILY SHARING THE OWNERSHIP AND TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP IS STILL A DIFFICULT PROBLEM SO PEOPLE DON'T WANT YOU UP SO PEOPLE DON'T WANT YOU TO PUBLISHERS DON'T WANT YOU TO GIVE THAT PART OF THAT PAPERBACK NOVEL TO THE PERSON DOWN THE STREET THEY WANT THAT PERSONNEL SHOULD COMBINE A COPY THAT THEY WANT YES THAT'S NOT WHAT HAPPENS BUT THAT'S YOU THAT'S WHAT THEY WANT WITH DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION MAY HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO THAT SO THEY GO ON FOR SUNDAY SO YOU CAN SAY HEY YOU HOPE OUT OF THE PEOPLE WERE NOT BINDING TO THIS YOU WERE GOING TO WORK AND RECONNECT WITH YOU KEEP GIVING OUR PAPERBACK NOVELS AWAY TO OUR FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS AND KIDS AND SKATEBOARDS WE CAN DO THAT WHY BECAUSE WE CAN AND WE ARE STICKING TO THE MAN OR THE WOMAN OR THE PERSON OR THE CORPORATION WHATEVER THE THING IS IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUE DOING THAT THAT'S FINE BUT WHAT ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN E-READERS BECOME A COMMODITY ITEM THEMSELVES TO BE THINKING ABOUT HOW LOW DO YOU GO BEFORE IT'S JUST AS EASY TO SAY I HAVE MORE THAN ONE E-READER AND I DOWNLOAD ON MY E-READER AND THERE IS A PART IS LIKE A LOCK ON THAT STOPS PEOPLE FROM ACCIDENTALLY DOWNLOADING STUFF THAT'S NOT THAT THEY CAN READ WHATEVER'S ON IT BUT I CAN'T SURF THE WEB I CAN'T DOWNLOAD MORE BOOKS ON MY ACCOUNT YOU WITHOUT AN ACCESS CODE NOW YOU DO THAT AND YOU MAKE THIS E-READER CHEAP THEN AT SOME POINT YOU GOING TO CROSS THE LINE AND IT'S GOING TO BE HERE JUST HAD MY E-READER AT THIS FOR FIVE BOOKS AND THEY MIGHT LIKE TO READ THE USA BUT THEN YOU'RE A NANNY READY WITH THAT THAT SHEEP IN A COMMODITY ITEM THEN YOU'LL HAVE MORE THAN ONE CI SEEN ARE A LOT OF POPULAR BESTSELLING NOVELS NO HARDCOVER PAPERBACK BETWEEN 20 AND $30 DO FOR BESTSELLERS REALLY POPULAR BOOKS AND I DID A SEARCH ON THE WEB LOOKING FOR CHEAP E-READERS AND THE THING IS THAT BEYOND THE KINDLE WHICH YOU GET FOR $79 THAT SETTLEMENT ADDS THAT 79 US THEY ARE THERE WAS A WHILE AGO DIDN'T LAST WAS A YAM COMPANY CALLED THE BEAGLE I THINK THEN OUR ALARM TEXT.TXT ARE THEY BRIEFLY HAD AN E-READER THAT WAS ARM SUPPOSEDLY SELLING THE €10 COULDN'T FIND MUCH FOR IT BUT THE WHOLE IDEA WAS IT WAS THE DIRT CHEAPEST E-READER IN THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN I ACTUALLY FOUND A FEW OUT THERE AND IT'S NOT AN ANIMAL THAT NOT SURPRISINGLY NOT VISIBLE IN WORK OUT A GAS ARM… IMAGINE HISTORY THAT ONE BUT IN ANY CASE FOR GOING THOSE FACTS FROM THE MINNOW BUT I THINK THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENED THAT SAID THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL E-READERS OUT THERE AVAILABLE FOR YOU STARTING AT $60 SO THAT OUR KINDLES SO THEY'RE GETTING CLOSE THEY'RE NOW USING INK TECHNOLOGY FROM 67 YEARS AGO PROBABLY OR EVEN OLDER BUT US ON THE POINT THE POINT IS THAT NOW YOU ARE IN A POSITION WHERE IT IS NOT COST IS FOR THE COST OF TWO HARDCOVER BESTSELLERS YOU CAN GET YOURSELF AN E-READER GETTING VERY VERY CLOSE TO DEATH BEING IN AN IMPULSE RANGE FROM THE MAINSTREAM POPULATION EXACTLY YES AND THAT MAKES THEM MORE A COMMODITY ITEM WHICH THEN MEANS WELL YOU KNOW IT'S NOT SO BAD THE GIVING AND PEOPLE LENDING THEM TO PEOPLE YOU SO AGAIN THAT'S NOT WHAT AM IS ON WHAT'S THAT'S NOT WHAT THE PUBLISHERS WANT THEY WANT YOU TO BUY ANOTHER ONE THEY WANT THE OTHER PERSON BY THEIR OWN AND DOWNLOAD THEIR OWN COPY THE BOOK BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN AS THEY DRIVE THE COSTS DOWN AND PEOPLE SO I AM AWARE OWNERSHIP OF THE DEVICE WILL MEAN YOU CAN GET AROUND THAT BY SIMPLY HAVING YOU LIKE A CELLBLOCK ON OH AND SAY YOU CAN'T BUY ANYTHING SO ANYWAY HONESTLY I AM BECAUSE E-READERS ARE NOT LIKE AN IPAD LIKE A NIGHT WHEN IPAD IS A TABLET ON ULTIMATE TABLETS IN SOCIETY THROUGH THE IPAD IN BECAUSE LOTS OF PEOPLE DO READ MY PADS PERSONALLY I READ ON ON ON THE PAPERWHITE OF RED ON IPAD AND I KNOW WHICH ONE I PICTURE READING IS NOT THE IPAD WILL GET WILL TALK MORE ABOUT THAT LATER BUT ANYWAY SO I A COST THE THING THAT IS INTERESTING I WANT TO GO BEYOND THOSE YOU THINK IS OKAY WILL THEN IF I'M GOING TO SWITCH FROM PAPERBACK NOVELS TO E-BOOKS AND E-READERS THEN I'M GONNA SAVE MYSELF MONEY THE LONG RUN BECAUSE YEA IT'S GONNA WORK OUT CHEAPER NOT GET ALL OF THESE ARE E-BOOKS BECAUSE YOU THEN IS TO BUY THE PAYBACKS BECAUSE AT PRINTING RIGHT THERE SO YOU THINK YOU WHERE IT'S GONNA COST LESS FOR DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION THAN PHYSICAL DISTRIBUTION OKAY YOU KNOW WERE A NEW ADVERSE IN OUR ONGOING THURSDAY THE OKAY SO I HAVE THIS THIS THIS THE PROBLEM WITH AMAZON AND I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE AMAZON'S BUSINESS MODELS DEFY ANALYSIS AND EXPLANATION THE ARM TO APPOINT NOW A GUY CALLED SCOTT MARLOWE IN 2011 DID A GREAT BLOG POST AND ITS LINK MACHINE AS YOU READ IT A BOUNCE SOME OF THE INS AND OUTS AND INTRICACIES OF AMAZON'S PRICING STRUCTURES FOR PAPERBACKS HARDCOVERS VERSUS E-BOOKS RATIONALE INSANITY MOSTLY INSANITY SO HERE'S THE THING I HAD A LOOK IN THEIR IS DOING A PREP THIS EPISODE JUST TO BRUSH UP ON A COUPLE OF DETAILS AND THEY HAVE THE MOST INSANE PRICING STRUCTURES I'VE EVER SEEN IT IS SO COUNTERINTUITIVE IT'S NOT FUNNY AND WHAT THEY DO IS THEIRS I GUESS WHAT YOU'D CALL WHAT I CALL A PRICE DISTORTION IS REALISED SOUNDS A BIT LIKE ASSAULT WEBSITE NAME ARM IT'S A BIT OF A INTEREST IF YOUR PRIME MEMBER YOU GET BOOKS THAN YOU YOU HOP YOU GET BOOKS FOR A MASSIVE DISCOUNT BUT NOT E-BOOKS YOU LIKE NOT NOT REALLY SO THAT I HAVE A BAD PAPERBACK BOOK THAT WOULD SELL TO A NON-PRIMER FOR ABOUT $16 US BUT IF YOUR PRIME MEMBER YOU GOT FOR $7.50 THAT'S SHIPPED TO YOU RIGHT OVER THE AREA YOU AN E-BOOK STARTED AT $11, WHILE THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE TO ME I'LL HANG ON I GET IT THEY ARE ENCOURAGING YOU BECOME A PRIME MEMBER SO THEY'RE DOING IS THEY'RE HIDING THAT COST AND THEN DRAGGING YOU WIN SO BY BEING A SUBSCRIBER TO THAT TO BE A PRIME MEMBER THE NET GETTING A REGULAR INCOME FROM THE RATHER SPORADIC INCOME FROM OCCASIONAL BOOKING MIGHT BUY PLUS OF COURSE YOU'VE GOT THE HALO EFFECT ONCE YOU BECOME A MEMBER THAT YOU ARE MORE INCLINED TO USE THEIR OTHER SERVICES THAT ALSO COST MONEY BUT ARE CHRONICALLY CHEAPER FOR PRIME MEMBERS YOU IS NOT A NEW STRATEGY I UNDERSTAND THAT THE WORD DOES MEAN IS IT'S VERY DIFFICULT TO DO A GENUINE PRICE COMPARISON BETWEEN PAPERBACKS AND E-BOOKS TO COME UP WITH SOME LACONIC INCLUSION HERE THAT THERE IS SOME OTHER VARIABLES IN THERE TOO THOUGH I AM SURE THERE WAS ALSO A TIME WHEN THE ABSOLUTE MACRO THROUGH KILOWATT WOULD BE MADE ONLY NINE AND AND MANY OF THEM WERE OFTEN FOUND FOR CHEAPER THAN THAT THERE IS PUBLISHER VARIABLE AND MAINTENANCE CHANGE SOME OF THAT ABSOLUTELY I DON'T WANT TO GET TOO MUCH MORE BURIED IN THAT BECAUSE FRANKLY OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAVE COVERED THIS PREVIOUSLY AND HONESTLY IT'S NOT A TOPIC THAT GREATLY INTERESTS ME AT THIS POINT SO I WILL LEAVE AMAZON ON THEIR EXCEPT TO CONCLUDE AMAZON IS A VERY BAD EXAMPLE OF E-BOOK ECONOMICS BECAUSE THEY JUST SEEM TO BE INSANE OR ARE THEY DO THINGS IN A WAY THAT IS DIFFICULT TO INFER FOR ME TO QUICKLY ADD DOUG DISSECT JUST FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS COMPARISON YET SO LEAVE IT THERE INSTEAD LESS OF OUR BARNES & NOBLE THAT ACTUALLY FOLLOW LAWS OF PHYSICS OR MORE CLOSELY ALIGNED WITH THE LAWS OF PHYSICS BUSINESS WE FIND AFTER WE DO A RANDOM SAMPLE PAPERBACKS VERSUS E-BOOKS THAT E-BOOKS WORK OUT AND AVERAGED ABOUT 37% CHEAPER YEA THAT'S MORE LIKE I'D EXPECT RIGHT OVER THERE WERE CASES WHERE PAYMENT WAS CHEAPER JUST LIKE AMAZON BUT THE NEXT APPOINT AS THE ECONOMICS OF PRINTING HUNDRED THOUSAND PAPERBACKS SELLING ONLY HALF OF THEM IN YOUR FLOOR OFFICE LEFT IS TO CLEAR SHELVES OR INVENTORY OR THAT'S A DIFFERENT PROBLEM DOESN'T EXIST WITH E-BOOKS SO YOU KNOW OBVIOUSLY IF THERE ARE EITHER A PAPERBACK NOVELS THAT ARE CHEAPER THAN THE E-BOOK CACAO COUNTERPARTS IT'S FROM BECAUSE THEY ARE THEY PRODUCED TOO MANY OF MEDTRONIC IRIDIUM SO NOW THAT'S THE MOST OBVIOUS EXPLANATION BUT ANYWAY OKAY SO COST CONVENIENCE CONTINUING YOU CAN DOWNLOAD AN E-BOOK WITHOUT LEAVING WHERE EVER YOU ARE NOW OBVIOUSLY THAT DEPENDS ON YOUR E-READER SUMMARIES HAVE 3G SOME DON'T ARE SOME WITH 3G AS PART OF THE WHEN YOU BUY IT AS YOU KNOW IS IN LIKE YOU DON'T PAY FOR OTHER ONES YOU IF YOU'RE WITHIN WI-FI RANGE NO SIZE LIMITATION SURE BUT THE TRUTH IS A LOT MORE WI-FI HOTSPOTS THAN THERE ARE BOOKSTORES SO YOU HAVE ACCESS TO BOOKS IN A MASSIVE NUMBER OF SITUATIONS AND IF YOU'VE GOT A SMART PHONE OR WHY WI-FI HOTSPOTS EVEN YATES IT'S WHEREVER YOU ARE EVEN IF YOUR WIFE I REREAD SO THAT DRY SPONTANEITY AND SPONTANEITY IS WISE THINGS ARE THAT KINASE HARD THE EVALUATE NO I CAN'T SAY TO YOU OF SPONTANEITY IS WORTH FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR CAN'T QUANTIFY IT IS DESIRABLE FOR A SUBSET OF PEOPLE ARE I THINK SPONTANEITY CAN BE GOOD BUT I'M A PLANNER YOU COULD ENOUGH TOWER I AM I, I CANNOT SPONTANEOUSLY I CAN BE SPONTANEOUS BUT I LIKE TO PLAN THINGS AND FRANKLY ARE I WOULD PLAN AHEAD IF I'M TAKING A TRIP ALONG I DO SOME READING I LIGHT UP MY E-READER ARE WITH BOOKS BEFORE I LEFT NO DIFFERENT OVERALL GO BY BUS NOVELS AND CHUCK THEM IN MY SUITCASE TO TAKE WITH ME ON A TRIP THE HISTORIC HISTORICALLY IN A SPONTANEITY MEANS IF YOU FOR YOU TO WORRY ABOUT THAT YOU CAN BE IMPULSIVELY NOTED IN THE FORWARD PLANNING GO AND IF YOU FINISH THE BOOK YOU ARE READING IS GOING DOWN ANOTHER ONE WEGO DAD TO GET UP NOW THAT SORT OF CONVENIENCE YOU CANNOT BEAT SO IS ALL SIDE THOUGH DO YOU REMEMBER BACK IN THE DAYS BEFORE WHEN PEOPLE HAD NO NEW ANONYMOUS PHONES YOU KNOW AND NII HAVE ARM YOUNGER PEOPLE GOD MAN THAT MAKES ME SELL ARE I HAVE PEOPLE OCCASIONALLY YOUNGER PEOPLE WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE STUFF ARM HAD YOU SURVIVE WITHOUT MOBILE PHASE HAS NO AREA ON WAS AND IS IT'S CALLED PLANNING YOU KNOW YOU ALL I'LL CALL YOU AT THIS TIME OR I'LL BE AT THIS LOCATION AT THIS TIME IT'S ACTUALLY NOT THAT HARD NOW SO ANYWAY BUT THEN AGAIN HARRY SAID THAT PEOPLE OF MOBILE PHONES BECAUSE IMAGING ENTAILS EVALUATING TIME AND HAS GOOD AND BAD SAME THING WITH E-BOOKS AND MAYBE YOU SHOULD BE DOWN ANOTHER BOOK TO REISSUE SPRINGTIME THE FAMILY NO DIFFERENT TO PLAY VIDEO GAMES IT'S IT'S STILL EXTRACTION SO ANYWAY ARE AA THIS ONE IS SO A FEW MORE LITTLE ONES THAT ARE SORT OF A CONVENIENCE IT'S SORT OF BORDERLINE CONVENIENCE RIGHT SO THE BORDERLINE CONVENIENCE ONE IS IT'S MORE OF A DURABLE IT'S A BITTER DURABILITY SO IF YOU DROP A BOOK IT'S VERY FINE BIT OF AN E-READER YOU CAN BE PROBABLY IN TROUBLE SO YOU FOR DURABILITY POINT OF VIEW BOOKS ARE ALWAYS GOING TO BE IN A BETTER POSITION IS FOR WATER ON A BOOK WELL IT'S FROM GONNA BE IN TROUBLE COLLECTIVELY DRIED OUT EXTRA WATER AND E-READER I HOPE YOU LIKE THE PAGER READINGS IS REALLY STUCK THERE FOREVER ANOTHER ONE THAT I THOUGHT OF WAS LOSING YOUR PLACE IN A BOOK HOW OFTEN DOES THAT

INTO A BOOKLET NEAR THE SPINE THEN YOU CLOSE THE COVER AND THE NATALIE CREATE PRESSURE AND RUIN THE ER THE ADHESIVE THE GLUE THAT SPINE THAT IS BINDING THE PAGES TO GET THAT THAT'S THE ISSUE IS OUR FINE LADY AS IT DEFORMS THE PAGE IT'S NOT PERFECTLY FLATTENING MORE SO WHEN YOU PUT THE BOOK OVER NATURALLY IS ATTRACTED TO THE PAGES HAD A BIG THICK BOOKMARKING FLOPPY TIME YET TENDS TO BE EXCELLENT WAYS IN THING ARE MY MOM MY BIGGEST COMPLAINT ABOUT ABOUT BOOKS IS THE FACT THAT I LOSE MY PLACE BECAUSE I'LL PUT A BOOKMARK IN THERE WHATEVER DESCRIPTION ARE AND KIDS COME ALONG AND FLIP THROUGH THE BOOK FOR IT GETS KNOCKED OFF THE TABLE OR THE BEDSIDE TABLE ALL THE WHEREVER THE HELL THE BOOKIES AND BOOKMARK FALLS OUT NOW FORGOT MY MUM TO THE SORRY NOT I WOULD SUGGEST MUSSER TAKEN A PICTURE WITH YOUR PHONE SUGGEST MAYBE MAKE IT OUT FOR THAT YOU ARE AND MAYBE A LOT OF WORKS SOON LEVEL OF THINK THAT THINK THAT THROUGH I THINK THAT'S ARE YOU THE WHOLE POINT OF AN BOOKMARK DISCUSSION OR BIT MORE ABOUT THAT THAN I THOUGHT WE HAD TO SAVOUR THE EGO AND HONESTLY IS NOT FROM AN E-READER E-READER MEMBERS WE WERE THAT'S IT YOU CAN DROP IT AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE YOU KNOW IT DOESN'T AS THERE IS NO PROBLEM WITH LOSING YOUR PLACE SO YOU AGAIN A WIN FOR THE READER WAY OF THINGS IS WHAT IT COULD BE TO ABOUT 40 CM DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY IS RESALE OF PAPERBACKS I WAS I WAS NOT GONNA MENTION THIS BECAUSE I FIND IT TO BE RIDICULOUS BUT HAVE YOU EVER SOLD BOOKS THAT YOU OWN THE MONEY LIKE SECOND-HAND MELT NO CIF ABE THEY USUALLY DIDN'T KEEP IT YOU NOW I'VE GIVEN BOOKS AWAY BUT I'VE NEVER SOLD THEM FOR MONEY AND GOT ME THINKING THERE'S ARM WHEN I WAS A KID WAS VERY WAS MUCH MORE POPULAR THAN TO GO TO THE SECOND-HAND BOOKSTORE AND THERE WERE ONLY A HANDFUL OF SECOND-HAND BOOKSTORES BUT THE THING THAT WAS WONDERFUL ABOUT SECOND-HAND BOOKSTORES WAS THAT THAT WAS WHERE YOU WOULD GO NOT JUST TO FIND CHEAP BOOKS OF BUILDING WANTING MORE THERE WERE 34 YEARS OLD IN SOME CASES BUT YOU COULD STRIKE GOLD TO SET OFF THAT WAS OUT OF PRINT OUT OF PRINT FOR YEARS THE JEWS COULDN'T GET ANY MORE IN THE SECOND-HAND BOOKSTORES YET AND I KNOW THAT A LOT OF MY BOOKS THAT I USE MY GRANDMOTHER CUT ME THE JOYS OF THE USE BOOKSTORE WHEN I WAS YOUNG YEAH AND THE SMELL YOU KNOW IT'S GOT A VERY UNIQUE SMELL COMPARED TO A BRAND-NEW BOOKSTORE NOW LIKE I DO CHAPTERS ARE WELL GOD WHO IS LEFT THIS CHAPTER STILL AROUND BUT I GONE ARE THE MOBIC GAS EXAMS ARE GONE IS MR CURRENT EVENTS, ARM ANYWAY WHATEVER THE POINT IS THAT YET IT'S IT'S A VERY DIFFERENT SMELL AND THE THING IS THOUGH SECOND-HAND BOOKSTORES ARE DYING AND THEIR DYING IS IS NO MONEY IN THEM AND BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE JUST NOT THERE NOT SELLING THE BOOKS THEY'RE NOT GIVING THE BOOKS TO THE SECOND-HAND BOOKSTORES IT IS NOT HAPPENING ANYMORE SO SALTS ALL DYING WHICH YOU THERE WILL ALWAYS BE INITIAL ALWAYS BE PLACES THAT HAVE THAT AND THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF A TRADE GOING ON BOOKS IN EBAY ON EBAY SORRY WHEN THE SHIPPING OF THE BOOK COSTS MORE THAN A BOOK AND EATING ACHIEVE A BRAND-NEW EFFORTS ON PRINT FROM AMAZON ON WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU SO I DON'T BUY THE WHOLE SECOND-HAND BOOK RESALE OF PAPERBACKS ARGUMENT AS TO WHY PAPERBACK BOOKS ARE BETTER BECAUSE

FRACTURE.CO/PRAGMATIC TO LEARN MORE AND ENTER THE COUPON CODE PRAGMATIC 2420% OFF THE TOTAL PRICE OF YOUR ORDER THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN TO LIE FAX FOR SPONSORING PRAGMATIC DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY NOW HONESTLY THE WINNING DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY FOR E-READERS IS IAN AND IT'S ACTUALLY STANDS FOR OUR ELECTROPHORETIC INC WHICH IS A BIT WEIRD WORK BUT ANYWAY AND ZARA IS ALSO IN A CORPORATION THAT ESSENTIALLY WHILE OWNED NOW THE WAY IT WORKS IS THINK OF ALL THEY CALL THE MICRO CAPSULES SMALL SPHERES AND SOME INSIDE EACH SPHERE THERE'S TWO KINDS OF PARTICLES POSITIVELY CHARGED PARTICLES OF ONE, USUALLY WHITE AND NEGATIVELY CHARGED PARTICLES USUALLY BLACK SO EACH INDIVIDUAL CAPSULE IS A PIXEL SO AS YOU KNOW WHEN MAGNETISM LIKE CHARGES REPEL AND ITS POSSIBLE BY CREATING A SMALL MAGNETIC FIELD DIRECTLY UNDER ITS THE CASH YOU CAN FLIP THE COLOUR OF THE CASUAL BY FULL LIVING THE FIELD AND ONCE IT'S FLIPPED IT WILL SIT SOUGHT ESTATE STAYS IN POSITION AND ARE THAT PARTICULAR TECHNOLOGY HOUR IS REFERRED TO AS A BY STABLE REFLECTIVE DISPLAY MEANINGS GABBED THE BICYCLE MANY HOLD STATE IN UNITED STATES AND IN MY POWER HAS BEEN REMOVED AND REFLECTIVE MEANS THAT THE A WORKSITE PAPER ON A BOOK WHICH IS NOW YOU READ IT YOUR EYES SEE IT FROM LIGHT THAT REFLECTS OFF THE SURFACE AND ALSO OBVIOUSLY SAVES ON POWER AND IT IS LESS LESS ANNOYING TO LOOK AT BECAUSE IT'S FAR MORE NATURAL VISIT OUR EYES WERE DESIGNED TO WORK NOW ARE A LOT OF E-READERS STILL REQUIRE A COMPLETE SWEEP OF EVERY PIXEL WHEN YOU CHANGE WHAT'S DISPLAYED WHICH IS WHY YOU'LL SEE ALL THE OLD CANDLES AND IS MANY OTHER E-READERS WHERE YOU'LL SEE THE WHOLE PAGE GO WHITE BLACK WHITE YELLOW BLACK/WHITE BLACK OR WHATEVER SOME ALTERNATION BEFORE THE NEXT PAGE OF TEXT IS DISPLAYED NEW TECHNOLOGY IS COMING OUT NOW HAS BEEN WITH THEM GRADUALLY OVER LAST FEW YEARS MORE EXPENSIVE OF COURSE ARE MORE COMPLICATED WHERE IT ONLY SELECTIVELY UPDATES A MUCH MUCH SMALLER AREA OF THE SCREEN SUCH THAT ON MOST BOOKKEEPER GO HUNDRED PAGES OR SO BEFORE YOU NEED TO DO A COMPLETE REFRESH OF THE SCREEN SO THAT'S THAT'S CALLED IS ALWAYS FOUND IT ANNOYING THAT NASA UNDERSTAND NOW THE REASON WHY SO THE DOWNSIDE OF HAVING A ESSENTIALLY A REFLECTIVE DISPLAY MEANS THAT THERE ARE WINDMILL LOW LIGHTS YOU CAN'T READ IT SO FROM A BOOK THOUGH SO FROM A COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE THERE IS NO ADVANTAGE EXCEPT OF COURSE THAT NEWER MODELS OF SOME E-READERS INCLUDING KINDLES LIKE THE PAPERWHITE FOR EXAMPLE I HAVE THEIR OWN SIDE LIGHTING LIGHT SOURCE THERE OBVIOUSLY IS CAN DRAIN THE BATTERY IT'S GONNA DRAIN IT A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN ONCE A DAY AT THE LIGHT AND SELLING WHEN THE LIGHTS NOT ON YOU BECAUSE IT DOESN'T BE OLD-TIME THERE YOU BUT STILL IT'S GONNA BE NOTHING AT ALL LIKE THE DRAIN FROM AN LCD OR LED SCREEN SO JUST REALLY QUICKLY LCD AND LED UNLOCKING ON A LONG PROTRACTED DISCUSSION OF THE DIFFERENT KINDS BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT OF DIFFERENT GUYS AND CELESTE JUST KEEP IT SIMPLE SO LCD IS A SHORT LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY WE'VE GOT MULTIPLE LAYERS OF SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT COLOURED ARE LIQUID CRYSTALS AND ZARA BAY HAD THEIR THEY BASICALLY TURN ON AND OFF AN ELECTRIC CURRENT IS PASSED THROUGH THEM AND THEY ARE ESSENTIALLY SEMITRANSPARENT SUCH THAT IF YOU DECIDE LIGHTS BEHIND THEM THE LIGHT WILL TRANSMIT THROUGH THEM AND YOU WILL SEE THAT LED IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT IDEA DIFFERENT COLOURED LCL LEDS RGB ALL SORT OF CLUSTERED REALLY TIGHTLY TOGETHER BLEND TOGETHER TO MAKE A PIXEL TO RELENTS USUALLY AND THEY EMIT LIGHT OF COURSE LIGHT EMITTING DIODES LEDS EITHER WAY THESE ARE REFERRED TO AS MISSIVE DISPLAYS AS AN EMISSION IS IN EMITTING LIGHT AS OPPOSED TO REFLECTIVE DISPLAY AND THEY ARE GENERALLY CONSIDERED TO BE HARDER ON YOUR EYES THAT'S CERTAINLY BEEN MY EXPERIENCE WHEN YOU THINK THEY DO THEY ARE SO ULTIMATELY ARM THEY HOWEVER HAVE SEVERAL ADVANTAGES AND THAT THE BIGGEST ADVANTAGES ARE AT LEAST WITH CURRENT TECHNOLOGY THEY HAVE THEY GOT A HEAD START ON ANY INFO LET'S BE HONEST AND LET'S BE FAIR BUT AT THE MOMENT THEY HAVE HIGH-RESOLUTION AND THEY ARE MUCH MUCH MUCH HIGHER REFRESH RATES SO YOU CAN REFRESH YOU 30 6020 TIMES A SECOND DEPENDING UPON THE DISPLAYS YOU KNOW COLOUR AND YOU GET MUCH BETTER COLOUR THAT YOU CAN GET COLOURING IT'S NOT ANYTHING LIKE COLOUR FROM AN LED LCL CD NO WAY BUT STILL THE POINT IS THAT YOU WILL GET MUCH SUPERIOR ARM QUALITY OF WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT FROM AN LCD AND LED DISPLAY THE OVERSEEING NO QUESTION NO DOUBT NO DISCUSSION NO DEBATE HOWEVER IT TELLS YOU BATTERY ABSOLUTELY SLAUGHTERED YOUR BATTERY SO THE LAST THING YOU WANT WHEN YOU'RE READING A BOOK IS TO LOSE POWER AND THEN I'LL EITHER BE ON E-READERS STUCK ON THE PAGE ON OR COMPLETELY UNLIKE SO WOULD YOU DO WELL TO GO IN AND IS WAY REASON BEING ARE GENERALLY THE PREFERRED OPTION DOES MEAN YOU CAN'T READ BOOKS AND STUFF ON ON ON YOUR IPADS AND ON YOUR YOU KNOW MOTOROLA'S ZOOM OF OTHER TABLET IN MY HAVE YELLOW TOUCHPAD YOU CAN'T YOU CAN'T RULE OUT THAT SERIOUSLY THAT PEOPLE PREFER READING AND E-READERS FOR A REASON ON BEING SCREENED FOR A REASON OKAY THE LAST BROAD SECTION AND I'VE GOT TO TALK ABOUT IS THE TOUCHY-FEELY STUFF IN MY I FEEL WE ARE PUTTING THE STUFF IN WHICH KNOW WHAT I HAVE TO HAVE IT ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT USUALLY A TOPIC THAT I WOULD COVER THE TOUCHY-FEELY BIT BUT YOU HERE WE GO SO I THINK THAT THERE IS AN EMOTIONAL MOMENTUM WITH PAPERBACK BOOKS WITH PAPER READING FROM PAPER AND WHAT I MEAN BY THAT IS THAT OUR BRAINS GET EMOTIONALLY SORT OF CONFUSED A BIT BASED ON NOT THE CONTENT THAT YOU'RE READING BUT THE DELIVERY MEDIUM OF THAT CONTENT YOU KNOW IT'S LIKE THE FEEL AND THE SMELL OF BOOKS YOUR BRAIN ASSOCIATES THAT USUALLY WITH A REALLY GOOD BOOK THAT WE READ WHAT YOU KNOW DANIEL PICK UP A BOOK THAT IS AVERAGE AND I BUT YOU'LL STILL PREFER TO READ AS A BOOK BECAUSE IT TRIGGERS THE MEMORIES OF THE GOOD BOOK YOU DID ONCE YOU READ ONCE LONG AGO, ANOTHER LONG AGO THAT YUMMY IN IT IS NO DIFFERENT TO HEARING A SONG AND IT REMINDS YOU WHAT YOU HEARD A SONG OF SOMEONE'S WEDDING OR YOU WERE SOMETIMES AT A FUNERAL AND BRINGS BACK BAD MEMORIES ARE POINT IS THAT YOU OUR BRAINS ASSOCIATE OUR SENSES TRIGGER MEMORY AND EMOTION SO PEOPLE SAY OUR BOOKS ARE ALWAYS GOING TO BE BETTER I GUARANTEE YOU THAT IF YOU WERE TO BRING UP OUR CHILD IN A WORLD WITH NO BOOKS AND ONLY E-READERS AND THEN INTRODUCED BOOKS THEY WOULD LOOK AT BOOKS AND FEEL THE SAME WAY AND THEY SAY WILL II YOU KNOW HOW CAN YOU HOLD THAT THING IT'S IT'S HEAVY IT SMELLS FUNNY THE ARROW AND GET IT SO THE ARGUMENT THAT YOU KNOW IT WILL HOLD ITSELF OPEN TO THE SAME SPOT I NG IS THE STUPID BOOKMARKS THING KEEPS I KNOW MY DAUGHTER'S FATHER FOLLOWED THE TOP-DOWN EQUIPMENT OKAY SO I BRING IT UP YOU KNOW NOW I KNOW THIS TIME MEAN OKAY THE EXPERIENCE OF WALKING INTO A BOOKSTORE WE SAW TALKED ABOUT THIS BUT A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE SMELL AND THE FEELING BUT GOING THROUGH A PINEAL BOOKSTORE AND SIMILAR LIBRARY FLIPPING THROUGH THE TITLES AND THE BOOKS THAT THEY'VE GOT ENJOYING THE USUALLY CHRONICLE USUALLY QUIET ATMOSPHERE THAT'S KINDA COMPLETELY NON-EXISTENT WITH ANY INTERSCOPE TABBY DUDE HOURS LIBERTY DAY AND YOU GOT YOURSELF YOU BOOK BUT YOU HOPE ANYONE GOT MY CRACKER SO YET THAT'S A VERY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE YOU CAN NEVER REPLICATE QUESTIONNAIRES IS AN EXPERIENCE THAT IS REALLY GOING TO BE WERE SAVED FOR THE MASSES IS IT WORTH SAVING DO ENOUGH PEOPLE VALUE AND I THINK THEY DO IT SORT OF A REALITY THAT WE CAN BECOME ACCUSTOMED TO IT CERTAINLY ISN'T MORE CONVENIENT AND IS SOMETHING THAT WE BECOME YOU STUDENT NOT NOT NOT BECAUSE BECAUSE WE HAD NO CHOICE WE HAD NO OPTION RATHER THAN WE DEMAND A BOOKSTORE BECAUSE BOOKSTORES ARE JUST THE BEST KNOW WE WENT TO THE BOOKSTORE BECAUSE WE WANT A BOOK AND I WRITES THE PIECE OF PAPER IS ALWAYS GOING TO FEEL WHAT I WAS SAYING THAT WITH CURRENT MATERIALS AND CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES THE FEELING OF A BOOK IS NICER AND MORE PLEASANT TO THE TOUCH I THINK THEN SOMETHING MADE OUT OF METAL PLASTIC RUBBER ANY COMMON MATERIALS THAT ARE CURRENTLY USED TO MAKE E-READERS AND TABLETS WOULD YOU ARE YOU SO I HONESTLY THINK THAT THAT IS ONE OF THE AREAS WHERE AGAIN IT'S TOUCHY-FEELY RIGHT FEELING LITERALLY BECAUSE YOU HAD YOU QUALIFY THAT AND MAYBE SOMEDAY IN FUTURE IS LIKELY TO MYSELF MOTEL EVENT SELLING THE FIELDS OF SAN PEDRO WILL BE HERE PICK UP THIS IPAD IN THE BACK FEELS LIKE PAPERING A BIT CLOSE RICE INTO THE FIELD TESTED TO THE BLIND FIELD TEST AND THEY GET CASEY REALLY CREEPY VERY QUICKLY BUT ANYWAY ARM RIGHT AND MOVE ON REMOTELY READING TO YOUR CHILD IS ON I'M GOING OUT WEST AGAIN FOR A FEW DAYS NEXT WEEK FOR FOUR DAYS NEXT WEEK AND IS I AM FACED WITH THE PROBLEM OF YOUR READING BOOKS TO MY MY KIDS MY YOUNGEST KIDS ANYWAY AND YOU CAN'T DO THAT WITH A PAPER BOOK NOT WITHOUT ADDING OTHER TECHNOLOGIES THAT I'VE USED OVER THEIR SHOULDER WHICH IS NOW PROBABLY A BIT AND I ABOUT ONLY OR PHONE-ON YOUR WHATEVER ANDROID PHONE WHETHER IT IS A THING OF YOUR REASONING IF YOU INTRODUCE ANOTHER TECHNOLOGY TO READ YOUR CHILD AND WHY AREN'T YOU JUST DOING ON IPAD BECAUSE THAT THEY ARE I WAS SORT OF BRILLIANT A/C AT THE LATEST EVENTS ARE APPLE EVENT JUST RECENTLY BUT THE IPADS THEY ARE THEY SHOWED CARIBOU AT CAIR EITHER YOU AT LANCASHIRE NOTES A DEMO THAT IN THE APPLE EVENT NOW THAT IS A COOL APP THAT SPONSORS CALL OUT AND IT ALLOWS YOU TO REMOTELY READ WITH YOUR CHILD THAT YOU THROUGH THE DOES BRING SOME FINE 400 MILES AWAY AND I WILL BE NEXT WEEK FOR FOUR DAYS. A GOOD HANDLE YOU GOT THAT MAGIC YOU KNOW AS BRILLIANT TRIED ANOTHER PAPERBACK GOOD LUCK ALTHOUGH MENTALLY FIT WAS A KID I WOULD BE GIVING THEM GRAMOPHONE STREET BUT STILL NO DEFINITELY NOT HERE SO I SKIP TO THE RENT WAITING OKAY NOW THEN OUR LAST ONE I'LL KNOW TWO MORE THINGS AND I THINK WHAT THEN DIVED UNDER MY NOTES AND THAT IS MOVE IN MY BOOKS AROUND ARE MY GOD SO I'VE GOT MYSELF 100 BOOKS 200 BOOKS WHATEVER I USED TO HAVE HUNDRED PLUS BOOKS WHAT I DO I NEED TO PUT SOMEWHERE IN A BOOKCASE THE BOOKSHELF NOW THEY CAN BE AN ENTIRE ROOM FOR SOME PEOPLE AND HONESTLY THAT'S A LOT OF SPACE YOU MOVE AROUND YOUR MOVE YOU A REALLY ONLY THOSE BOOKS AGAIN I MIGHT WANT TO READ A ONE-DAY SAGA HE HAD WHAT THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS THAT'S HOW IT HAPPENS YOU ARE BOOK ORDER THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE AND YOU KNOW THAT MAYBE IT'S OKAY SOME PEOPLE ARE PROUD OF THAT AND THAT'S FINE YOU COLLECT BOOKS THAT'S FANTASTIC SO WILL HAVE THEIR OWN LIBRARY IN THEIR OWN HOUSE I COULD TO STUDY BUT IT'S BETTER BE MORE ACCURATELY REFERRED TO AS A LIBRARY WITH NO WALLS LINED OF BOOKCASES AND THE BEST PARTIES I CAN FIT EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM INTO A SINGLE AREA SO HONESTLY DO YOU REALLY NEED TO DEAL WITH AT ULTIMATELY FINALLY I THINK THAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE BOOKSTORES I THINK THAT YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE PAPERBACK BOOKS I GUY CANNOT FORESEE A TIME WHEN I WILL COMPLETELY DISAPPEAR I DO THINK THAT IT WILL BE FOR HARD TO FIND BOOKS NICHE BOOKS LTD RUN BOOKS REAR ADDITION BOOKS THINGS LIKE THAT YOU KNOW THAT'S WHAT IT WILL BE BUT THEY WILL BE A TOKEN YOU HOW I DO GOLDEN RECORDS YOUR PLATINUM RECORDS DON'T MAKE RECORDS MUCH ANYMORE THEY MAKE VINYL MUCH ANYMORE THEY REALLY DON'T KNOW IT WILL BECOME A TOKEN THING HERE I'VE GOT THIS BOOK IT SOLD A MILLION COPIES HE IS A PAPERBACK OR HARDCOVER FROM THE MORE LIKELY A HARDCOVER BOOK AND I MAY BE AN AUTHOR SIGNS THAT EGO ALSO SIGNED THE INSIDE OF THE COVER THE GO THAT SURPRISE OR SOMETHING AND PEOPLE GET IT AND I'LL PUT ON THE BOOKSHELF NEVER READ IT BECAUSE THEY GOT A COPY AND E-READER BUT THEY'VE GOT BECAUSE GO IT'S IT'S IT'S A SPECIAL COLLECTORS THAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE SPECIALTY BOOKSTORES I THINK THE PEOPLE THAT ARE TRULY ENTHUSIASTS BUT HONESTLY REALISTICALLY E-READERS ARE ULTIMATELY GOING TO WIN AND BOOKS ARE GOING TO DIE NOT COMPLETELY BUT THEY GOING TO FADE SIGNIFICANTLY AND I JUST THINK THAT'S INEVITABLE THAT A FIXER I THINK THE JAM ANYTHING THAT YOU THINK ARE LEAVING A LIST NOW YOUR SAA I THINK THAT I WOULD ADD THAT ONE THING THAT COMES UP A LOT WHEN I HAVE THIS DISCUSSION WITH PEOPLE ABOUT E-BOOKS VERSUS ROBERT ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE REALLY WORRIED ABOUT THAT THE FUTURE OF THE LIBRARY AS AN INSTITUTION AND A PLACE TO GO WHEN ADULT THINK PEOPLE NEED TO PANIC THAT THAT'S GONNA GO AWAY AS AS THE PAPER BOOK DECLINES IN FAVOUR OF E-READERS I THINK THE LIBRARY WILL CHANGE BUT I THINK IT FULFILS A COMMUNITY SERVICE THAT IS ALWAYS CAN BE VALID IT'S ALWAYS CAN EXIST I THINK THE LIBRARIAN'S JOB OR CHANGE BUT I THINK THAT THAT'S STILL GOING TO NEED TO THAT PLACE AND THAT INSTITUTION AND THAT SERVICES I WAS GONNA NEED TO EXIST IN MY TENT I TEND TO AGREE UP TO A POINT I THINK THAT ONCE EVERYTHING BECOMES SO CHEAP I MEAN IF YOU IF IT COSTS 10 BUCKS FEELING DOWN BY KENDALL DEBT BUT THESE ARE LIBRARY KINDLES SHALL WE SAY LOCAL GOVERNMENT KINDLES WHATEVER SO JUST LIKE YOU PAY YOUR RATES EVERY YEAR FOR THEM TO PICK UP THE GARBAGE IN YOUR INNER DEAL WITH TREATY SEWAGE AND GIVE YOU FRESH RUNNING WATER AND ALL YOUR STUFF THEY CALL RATES OVER THE ARE THERE WAYS JUST A SERVICE FEE SERVICE FOR ALL THAT WAS HIT WHEN I SAID I WILL USE RENT OVER THEIR SALES OR HIDDEN THE RENTAL COST SITE IDEATION I WAS CALLED SO THE POINT IS WHAT IT WOULD IT NOT BE THE DIRECTION FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO HAND OUT GOVERNMENT ISSUED ONCE AND YOU WOULD BE ENTITLED TO ONE EVERY FEW YEARS AS PART OF YOUR SERVICE FEES AND YOU COULD THEN DOWNLOAD THINGS FROM A CATALOGUE IN THE LIBRARY OVER E-READER ARM I'M NOT SURE THAT ANALOGY HOLDS UP 100% BUT I THINK THAT THAT THE POINT THAT YOUR MAKER CAN BE VALIDLY ARM A LOT OF PLACES LIKE THE CITY IS THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GARBAGE AND STUFF YOUR SITE ON OF THAT THEY'D BE LUMPED TOGETHER BUT IN AKKAD THAT THE POINT THAT YOU MAKE AND I THINK WOULD BE VALID AND AND THAT THAT IT COULD SHIFT OVER TO AN AREA THAT CAME RESPONSIBILITY BUT I TEND TO THINK OF THE LIBRARY AS IT IS A SOCIAL PLACE AS A SOURCE OF INFORMATION PLACE IS ALREADY INVOLVED IN A LOT OF WAYS ALREADY USE A MENU GOAL NOW IN YOU CAN CHECK OUT CDS AND YOU CAN CHECK OUT DVDS AND BOWEL CANCER THINGS AND I THINK IT'S JUST I WAS GONNA EVOLVE BUT I THINK THAT THAT THE SOCIAL NEED AND THE COMMUNITY NEED AND THAT THE SOURCE FOR INFORMATION I THINK THAT THOSE REASONS WILL ALWAYS KEEP LIBRARIES OPEN WHILE ADMIT THAT THEY PROBABLY WILL NEED AS MUCH STAPH AS THEY NEED AND THEY MAY NOT NEED AS BIG A PHYSICAL LOCATION I THINK WHAT I THINK WHAT WILL HAPPEN IS THE SMALL LIBRARIES WILL SHUT DOWN AND EVERYTHING WILL BECOME CONCENTRATED INTO THE CITY CENTRES LIKE THE REALLY BIG CITY CENTRES AND WHAT WHAT WHAT OUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT CURRENTLY DOES IS THERE IS A LARGE PUBLIC LIBRARY IN CABOOLTURE AND THERE IS A MOBILE LIBRARY WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY A SEMITRAILER SEMITRAILER THAT DRIVES AROUND AND IT'S FULL OF BOOKS ODDLY AND IT WILL SPEND ONE DAY A WEEK AT A SMALLER TOWNSHIP SO AT STOP THE ROAD BE A BARHAM FOR EXAMPLE AND THEN THE OTHER NEXT DAY A GLASSHOUSE MOUNTAINS AND THEN THE NEXT DAY AT BEERWAH AND SO ON AND SO FORTH AND THEN OUTWEIGH LOCALS WILL WHO CAN'T DRIVE WON'T DRIVE I STILL HAVE SOME ACCESS TO LIBRARY OUR TWO LIBRARY FUNCTION'S YELLOW LIKE BORROWING BOOKS AND SO ON OTHER SERVICES THAT GO AROUND THE VET WITH WITH THE TRYOUT WITH THE TRUCK BUT THE SAME TIME THEY DON'T AREN'T BIG ENOUGH TO WARRANT THEIR OWN LIBRARY AND I THINK THAT THAT SORT OF CONTRACTION AND THAT METHODOLOGY WILL CONTINUE TO THE POINT WHICH THE CABOOLTURE PUBLIC LIBRARY EVENTUALLY WILL CLOSE IN AUGUST BECOME ONE LIBRARY IN BRISBANE AND EVENTUALLY IT WILL BECOME ONE LIBRARY AND STATE CAPITAL WHICH AGAIN INDICATES QUEENSLAND HAPPENS TO BE BRISBANE BUT YOU KNOW I THINK A LOT OF REGIONAL LIBRARIES IS A FIXED LOCATION WILL SHUT DOWN AND SIMPLY BECOME MOBILE LIBRARIES TO GO FROM AREA TO AREA INEVITABLY IT'S GOING TO BE CHEAPER TO BLANKET THE CITY WITH NOT WI-FI BUT PERHAPS A SUCCESSOR TO WI-FI LOW BANDWIDTH LOW-COST THAT ANY E-READER CAN ACCESS TO PROVIDE BASIC INTERNET SERVICE I THINK IN THAT THAT'S THAT IT'S ALREADY STARTING TO HAPPEN WITH WI-FI YOU KNOW YET BUT ROBERT WI-FI'S RANGE AND ARRANGES DIFFICULT NEED TO LOOK AT DIFFERENT TEXTS LIKE DIFFERENT TECHNOLOGY BUT ANYWAY I THINK THAT THAT'S WHERE IT'S GONNA GO BECAUSE YOU YOU LOOK IN 20 3040 YEARS TIME IT'S GOING TO BE UNHEARD OF I THINK THAT YOU DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO THE INTERNET IS JUST IT'S GOING TO BE AVAILABLE IF YOU WANT ACCESS RECENTLY GO TO YARROW THE MAIN LIBRARY OR WHATEVER YOU OR YOU WRITE TO THEM OR WHATEVER MAYBE NOT CALL THEM WHATEVER I DON'T KNOW THAT ENABLED CELL SEND YOU A VERY BASIC TABLET E-READER DEVICE THAT YOU CAN NO THAT YOU CAN USE AS PART OF YOUR YOUR RATES AS PART OF YOUR TAXES THAT SAY WHAT THINK ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY THAT WOULD SAVE THE GOVERNMENT YOU COULD YOU WOULD STREAMLINE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE YOU NEED TO HAVE A FACING INDIVIDUALS YOU COULD SHUT DOWN ALL THESE DIFFERENT OFFICERS I'M NOT SAYING THAT I LIKE THAT IDEA NECESSARILY THAT BUT LOOK AT THE TRENDS LOOK AT WHERE IT'S GOING AND THINK HOW GOVERNMENTS THINK YET UNLESS IS HUMPHREY APPLEBY IN WHICH CASE DON'T THINK LIKE THAT BUT YOU KNOW YOU ARE ONLY MICE IS HUMPHREY APPLEBY TONIGHT ARE REALLY SORRY ARM THERE IS A VERY EYES IS A POPULAR BUT PERHAPS NOT POPULAR IN YOUR NECK OF THE WOODS BUT ARM SHOW BY THE BBC IN THE 70S CALLED YES MINISTER WAS FOLLOWED UP BY ANOTHER SERIES CALLED YES PRIME MINISTER AND THEY WERE SHOWS ABOUT BRITISH POLITICS PARTICULARLY FOLLOWING JAMES HACKER AS HE WORKED HIS WAY UP FROM ARM IS THE LOWER BENCH OR WHATEVER IT WAS AND EVENTUALLY BECAME WAS MADE PRIME MINISTER MAINLY BECAUSE HE WAS CONSIDERED TO BE A BIT DIMWITTED AND ARE ABLE TO GET THINGS PASSED HIM IT WAS MEANT TO BE SATIRICAL BIRTHDAY THE THING IS THAT IT HIT HOME ON SO MANY COUNTS ABOUT POLITICS WASN'T FUNNY THAT SAY WAS A REALLY REALLY GOOD SHOW I'M THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IS HUMPHREY APPLEBY WAS THE HEAD OF THE CIVIL SERVICE I WAS IN YEARS ANYWAY SO THE CONSUMMATE CONSUMMATE TERM PUBLIC SERVANT ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING IT WAS PLAYED BY YUM'S NIGEL HAWTHORNE LA AYO HEARS TALK WHEN SOMETHING IS CHECKING OUT SCRATCH I HESITATED IT HASN'T DATED IT REALLY HAS A MEAN OKAYED THE VEHICLES AND THE SIMILAR SIMILAR CLOSE THE GO THE SUITS THE MEN WHERE A JOKER SUPERSEDES THE SUITS BUT HE HAS GENERALLY SPEAKING I WOULD IMAGINE THAT THE DRAMA AND THE STORY HOLDS UP THE OLD EAR IS NOT DRIEST COMEDY BUT IT'S IT'S HIS SOAK AND WRITING WELL ARM IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE THAT YOU WANT ADD ALL WRAPPED UP AT THE GROUP IF

LED LCD IS NEGOTIATING NZ IT'S A JOKE DESTINO AND UNTIL THE TECHNOLOGY IMPROVES AND BECOMES CHEAPER AT ESTABLISHING A SET DOG OHIO DPI IN BLACK AND WHITE AS THEY ARE ACTUALLY CAN THINK OF IT BEFORE THEY GO TO THE OPEN BEFORE COLOUR BECOMES MORE WIDELY ADOPTED THERE WAS ONLY A RESILIENCE WHAT WAS IT IS ECONOMICAL AND EFFICIENT I THINK THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF DEMAND FOR IT SURE ABSOLUTELY BUT YOU YOU ALSO HAVE TO CONSIDER THE FACT THAT MOST E-BOOKS HAVE BEEN WRITTEN WITH THAT IN MIND THAT BLACK AND WHITE WE GOT TO DEAL WITH SO GOING TO COLOUR IS GOING TO GIVE YOU PRECIOUS FEW TITLES WHEN IT'S CAN BE OF ANY ADVANTAGE WHATSOEVER SO I THINK THAT IT'S A THE TECHNOLOGY WILL IMPROVE YOU'LL BECOME MORE DESIRABLE MORE E-BOOKS WILL SUPPORT COLOUR AND AT THAT POINT IN TIME IT WILL BECOME NO MORE THE THING BUT I'M STILL NOT I'M STILL NOT SOLD ON IAN HAS A LONG-TERM VIABLE TECHNOLOGY I HONESTLY THINK THAT THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING ELSE AEROSOL WOULD LOOK PROMISING BUT YOU HONESTLY THIS IS NOT BEEN WIDELY ADOPTED AND HONESTLY I'M NOT SURE WHY THAT'S AN INTERESTING QUESTION I WISH I HAD A BETTER IDEA BUT I DON'T ABOUT THAT PARTICULAR KIND OF DISPLAY THAT HOPEFULLY IT ANSWERS A QUESTION�
