The future of reading

Ever wanted to know why people want to read?

Tom Peters tries to answer that question in this post as he looks at the future of reading as we stand on the cusp of the ebook revolution

The future of reading is very much in doubt. In this century, reading could soar to new heights or crash and burn. Some educators and librarians fear that sustained reading for learning, for work, and for pleasure may be slowly dying out as a widespread social practice. Only at living history farms will we see people reading.
