By way of Tim O’Reilly’s blog, this piece from the Salt Lake City Tribune.

This flurry of publishing, including the huge growth in POD, reminds me of my experience buying for the poetry and drama shelves at the Boulder Bookstore many years ago. It seemed that everyone wanted to write poetry (and pitch their books to the local bookstore) but that few poets actually bought it.

Also, there’s no doubt at all that DVDs, video games, and the internet are cutting into reading time. I’m an avid reader, and I always will be, but I also watched four seasons of 24 in the last five months, 3 on DVD.
