The Bookseller blog points to an interesting comment in the Forbes special report about the future of books with a conclusion that although conventional wisdom would suggest that in the age of the Internet the traditional printed paper format should be in trouble the world of reading is healthy.

There are a series of piece about books, publishing and literacy. An interesting one for web savvy users is the piece about the impact of the web on literacy which covers blogs, Amazon reviews but also some of the interesting ways teachers are using web applications to get students to interact with characters and language.
