Listen Online: Books and Bookstores Discussed on Nevada Public Radio Program

From Nevada Public Radio:

The last few years there’s been a literary tug-of-war. On one side is the traditional book made out of paper. On the other side – the e-reader – a technology that exploded about eight years ago when Amazon’s Kindle arrived on the landscape.

At the time, many people wondered if the traditional brick-and-mortar bookstore was doomed. Many are still wondering.

Bookstores haven’t disappeared – at least not yet — although there are fewer than there used to be. So where does the bookstore biz in Las Vegas stand in all of this?

The program runs 30 minutes.
