Session held at Amplified08 on 27th November 2008 on the Future of the Book. You'll need to download to see the notes!

The session & discussion covered:
* What's the future for the traditional paper book? Where do e-books fit in?
* What's the future of the e-book? What are the pros and cons of their adoption over paper books?
* What's the future of reading? How will the increase in the usage of mobile devices change the use of books (both paper and ‘e’)?

At the end of this, we wanted to come up with some suggestions and thoughts about what we as consumers and creators of books, stories, experiences & content do to stay current with the trends for books & reading.
