The Digital Bookstore Of The Future

It’s really sad to know that in USA, one book store has closed its 200 chains across the country. The reason is more & more people are switching to digital e-books, also ordering & buying books online.

Anyone who has at least some working knowledge of internet can browse the internet for any book he likes and can buy it online. There is no need for him to go to the market for the book. So, we can say that today people don’t need a physical place to buy any books.

The major mistake most of the publishing house has made is that they thought digital media & print media are two separate identities. The major advantage of a physical book shop is the reading environment, social mixing & interaction with other book lovers. Another advantage is that the plenty of choice a book store gives. We can see through each book we like before buying. This facility we won’t get in the case of e-books.

A best idea to blend the digital technology & physical books is to setup a wi-fi network all over the bookstore. This will allow a book lover to read all sort of books & magazines over the computer, until he/she remains in the area of the network. Any type of ,laptop, tablet, etc can access the wi-fi network.

The bookstore will have the facility of Headphones for the book lovers who want to access the digital media. To purchase the books, credit cards will be used. Although, establishing such network is not so easy but it will be a challenging task.
