Radio Program/Online Audio: "The Future of Books and the Way We Read"
How will the publishing industry adapt, will booksellers continue to exist, will writers have to “write” differently” and since we know longer can rely on book covers and the suggestions of booksellers, how do readers decide what to read? In this hour of Radio Times, the future of books and reading. We’ll start off our conversation about the health of the publishing industry with Jim Milliot of Publishers Weekly. Then we turn to Charlotte Abbott, a contributing editor at Publishers Weekly. She was formerly an acquiring book editor at HarperCollins and Avon Books and now consults with publishers about e-books, e-publishing and their digital strategy.
