試題內容

    Paul:

  I think books will be more affordable. They are pretty expensive. Publishers are so silly be-cause they focus on "We're not going to be selling so many hardcover books at $26." But you're going to sell infinitely more electronically, so what are you complaining about? I view it as a greater opportunity. My e-reader is great because I travel, and I don't want to carry a billion things with me.

  David:

  I don't own an e-reader, and I've never read a page on an e-reader. I do everything I can to avoid more screen time. Not to play down the value of a physical book, when it comes to somebody investing in one, it's something you want to keep. You have to give readers a choice, between a richer experience with physical books, and a more lifeless experience through an electronic reader.

  James:

  The new immigrants don't shoot the old inhabitants when they come in. One technology tends to supplement rather than substitute. How you read is not as important as: Will you read? Will you read something that's a book-the sustained train of thought of one person speaking to another?

  Search techniques are embedded in e-books that invite people to dip into something rather than follow a full train of thought.

  Alex:

  We've maintained in the last few years there will be fewer bookstores. We have the best business model in the world. Books are still a majority of what we sell in stores, but they are becoming less and less. About 50 percent of physical books are sold in non-bookstore outlets, like drugstores and club stores. There are people with agendas in this industry, but the physical book is going no- where.

  William:

  E-readers take out the paper middleman and give me what I want from books: the words. My e-reader has allowed me to read more than ever. When I travel I can take five books with me all without cutting down a single tree or using any extra jet fuel. Books made of paper can be beautiful, but they are never as beautiful as the words in the best of them.

  Now match the name of each person (1 to 5) to the appropriate statement.
