AJC: The Future of Books

There will always be 'books' | "So what's going to replace [books]?

Teeny, tiny little devices that will fit on your key chain and have enough storage to hold electronic versions of every book in the Library of Congress, according to the founder of Project Gutenberg, which seeks to put every book in the public domain online so people can download free.

'I just bought a $13 RAM stick at Target that holds 1 gigabyte of information,' said Michael Hart, founder of the nonprofit Project Gutenberg. 'You could put 200 copies of the complete works of Shakespeare or a couple thousand ordinary books on there. Every book you ever read in your life.'"
