Michael Hyatt makes an excellent case for why books are eventually going to die. I am not going to revisit the Kindle announcement, but I agree with all his points on why the book buying, storing, publishing and selling processes are broken. I wont say books are dead, but the processes are broken.
I disagree that Kindle’s going to make it happen. I read a lot of blogs and buy a lot of books on Amazon.
I read most of my blogs on Google reader (Nothing can beat free). My blackberry and the iPhone do a great job of letting me do that. I dont need the Kindle to help me with that. As before I maintain that Sony Reader and Kindle are going to be DOA because of iPhone. I carry a lot of devices. I dont need another device that I have to charge.
