Book Signing Have Adapted!

Kindle 3G Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 3G Works Globally, White, 6" Display with New E Ink Pearl TechnologyAs an author and reader, I wondered how the new world of ereaders would effect book signings. We have an answer!

Authors and their fans will still get face time with each other even in this era of the ereader. According to the GalleyCat article below, fans will arrive with ereader in tow and authors will sign them. (Picture in the article below)

The article mentioned the ereaders themselves may not be a good surface for the signatures as they are shiny and wipeable. I liked the suggestion of having the author sign the ereader covers. Keeping a collection of covers when the lifetime of the ereader has expired.

 Society amazes me. We have so much technology changing our culture and world. We struggle, debate and adapt hopefully retaining the important aspects in our lives.

Read a book today!
