What Good Are Books and Publishers?

26 Aug

I just had two thoughts watching this diavlog:

Is book publishing doomed? (Bhtv)

1. Books can’t compete with the visual efficiency of movies, and shouldn’t (No more Dostoyevskyan ordeals). Descriptions should just be about plot development and challenging the reader’s presuppositions.

2. In the future, self-promotion will become ubiquitous, and the line between artistic expression will disappear. Everyone will have art to showcase.
