If you’re not a bookworm, you probably don’t want to read this article. The future of reading and books may be in danger. People are turning away from reading books to watch television, play video games, and socialize. In 50 years, books may not even exist. Many people will have never heard the word book. If they do, reading for pleasure will be a rare occurrence.
Bookstores will continue to exist
The growth of the internet has changed the way people shop, and this trend has affected bookstores. More people are choosing to buy clothes and home goods online instead of visiting local brick-and-mortar stores. This decline has impacted small businesses, but it has also affected big-box retailers, who have closed hundreds of stores due to declining sales.
As more people prefer reading digitally, the need for bookstores will decrease. Even third-world countries are slow to adopt new technologies, and many people will need time to convert. As a result, bookshops will continue to exist, but they may close due to a lack of competition.
Despite the widespread belief that e-books will replace print books, recent consumer data suggests that consumers still want physical books. Even Amazon recently opened a physical bookstore.
Printed books are not going away

They are more durable and appreciated for their quality. Here are some reasons why printed books will never go away.

E-books are easier to share and distribute
E-books are generally distributed in downloadable file formats. Because they are a digital format, readers can read them offline. They are available in a variety of formats, including EPUB and MOBI. Some ebook distributors use different formats for their titles, depending on their platform. TXT is the most common format for text-based content, while PDF is the most common format for graphical content.
Unlike paper books, eBooks are easier to share and distribute. Most eBook formats are searchable, allowing readers to find and download information that they’re looking for. Some eBooks even allow you to adjust the font size, making them easy to read on small screens. Many eBooks also have interactive features, including audio, video, and animations. Plus, eBooks can be shared and distributed more easily, without the hassles of maintaining a retail store or shop.
While e-books are easier to share and distribute than printed books, they still require extra steps in order to prevent piracy. eBook sellers should consider converting their eBooks to PDF format, one of the most secure file formats that also allows users to set their own level of access. Some e-book distributors, including Sellfy, offer PDF-stamping, which helps protect the information of eBook buyers.
They are easier to access information
Books are an excellent source of information, but the problem they have is that they can’t keep up with the speed of change. Previously, information took a long time to be transmitted, but with the invention of the internet, information travels within milliseconds. The internet makes it easier than ever to check facts and stats, and can also be used to challenge a source’s accuracy. However, books are still a good source of information for those who want to learn more.
