The Death of the Book

The death of the book has become a common trope over the past 20 years, ever since the introduction of hypertext. Readers (scholars) bemoan the shift from print to the screen. sometimes out of nostalgia, sometimes out of real concern for changes in literacy that digital reading and writing bring with it.

More broadly, the death of the book refers to the (purported) idea that people don't read much anymore.
