Will e-books replace paperbacks?

WITH the rise of the e-book and the fall of Angus and Robertson and Borders bookstores, could the turning of a page soon be replaced by a click of a button?

Co-owner of Bookends Book Exchange in Tweed Heads South, June Graham, believes there will always be a place for traditional books.

Ms Graham opened her book store with business partner Veronica Spiby in mid-December 2010, and said she has not had any doubts about their future.

“I think there will always be a place for books. Elderly people still like to buy books,” Ms Graham said.

“I still like the feeling of opening a book.

“The best part about owning a book shop is the people you get to meet; this has always been a dream.”
