If you're interested in the future of reading and books, do not miss Chauncey Mabe's excellent posting over at Open Page, the blog for the Florida Center of the Literary Arts, which cites articles from Mashable and The Washington Post on holiday ebook sales and fictions and includes a word that will soon strike terror in the hearts of old-school readers.
That word is "vooks." As in "video" and "books."
Seriously. It's going to scare all hell out of you.
