If eBooks Soar, What Will Book Fairs Look Like?

-1.jpg
At Thrillerfest this week, Gina Centrello, President and Publisher of The Random House Publishing Group, said that in five years eBooks will be 50% of book sales.

With that in mind, what will book conferences look like? Above is a stack of books from Thrillerfest today. Will this site be a thing of the past in five years? Will we instead see a stack of promocards with codes to download books? Or will there just be a good conference website where attendees can log on with their Wi-Fi enabled book readers and download the eBooks?

Somehow getting your Kindle signed doesn’t seem as appealing, as having a print copy signed. But perhaps inventors will come up with a cool way to do this.

What do you think?
