4 thoughts on “The Bookstore(s) of Tomorrow?

  1. I just realized that I’m really going to have to deferrintiate my blog posts somehow so it doesn’t appear as if Ty S. is posting. 🙂

  2. The convenience factor would be amazing. I’m doubtful it would ever come around my neck of the woods, but it would certainly be interesting to try out.

  3. The Espresso is an amazing machine. But if I had to take a guess, I think the future of bookstores will be a little more mixed than what Moriah Jovan suggested. I think traditional bookstores will survive pretty much as they are, but there will probably be fewer and fewer of them, maybe only a couple per medium-sized city (I’ll use Columbus, Ohio, as an example). Used bookstores will probably become a little more common, but eventually I think even that will be weeded out a bit. If something like the Espresso ever really takes off, I’d expect to see one or something similar in every Wal-Mart across the country. Maybe even a little kiosk where ebooks can be uploaded to a Kindle or similar device.

    Whatever happens, it’s going to be interesting.
