This week’s RFT cover story, “Disappearing Ink: What Will Happen To All the Books?,” is all about the relevance of printed books. Thousands of books are recycled, repurposed, or simply thrown in the trash each year. The value of the printed word seems to be in swift decline, while ebooks (which have been around since the 1970s) are becoming ubiquitous, thanks in large part to the popular Nook and Kindle ereaders.
