Book Machines Might Save Book Stores
BAM customers have access to seven million titles, many from major publishers including Random House, W.W. Norton, and Simon & Schuster. Customers can also print self-published works or any user-generated content pick it up in the store.
This could offer the same instant gratification as an ebook. The trick will be to satisfy the eye-catching cover attraction and browsing behavior of books already in the story.
And why couldn’t this machine offer an ebook download via WiFi?
