True, book reading isn't exactly soaring, but sales of magazines and other periodicals are growing steadily. I maintain that the "killer app" for e-books will probably be summed up by 2 words: "color magazines." The first company to create a color reader and subscriptions to online versions of popular magazines, they won't be able to make enough of 'em.
