Go Read More Books, That Ought To Do The Trick

Something like 180,000 new books published every year

How many books, eBooks, articles and workshops have been dedicated to midlife self-improvement? How many in midlife actually self-improve? And I mean in a significantly balanced way. How many do you know?

Eight Posts Yesterday

CAUTION!
CAUTION!

Blah, blah, blah, right?

The Internet’s only Five-a-Day Blogger”…..

It started as a 100-day challenge to become a better writer, after a Father told his young son, “If you want to be a better reader, you should read a lot.”

So what happens yesterday?  Not five daily blogs, but eight.

Recently, had a discussion and we talked about the future of books:

  • Books will be relics on display in Museums
  • eBooks will dominate
  • Kindle will destroy the publishing industry
  • The publishing industry will watch it happen
  • Librarians will lose their jobs
  • Unless they become Cybrarians
  • There were 177,000 books published last year
  • People think it’s hard to write a book
  • Authors think their book will sell many copies
  • Barnes & Noble will go out of business eventually
  • People get ready (Bob Marley reference)

“Books” will be written one day at a time. In public, for the public.

Books will be free.  Writers will be poor. And writers will come to realize that there are far too many choices.

A whole new paradigm is being created.

One page per day, almost like reality TV.  People will read blogs, and over time, they will have “read a book” and not even know it.

Eventually, this new paradigm will give way to the next.
