I don't know about the disruption of paperback books. E-readers will impact them. A tipping point may occur when/if the Sony or Kindle reader hits $100 or less. Right now, frequent travellers will ultimately move to an e-reader and move away from paper. "Where can I get one of those?" has been asked of me so often that I'm thinking about asking Sony for a sales commision. Bottomline is who wants to retain dozens of used, yellowing pulp fiction paperbacks? E-books are cheaper, store easier and read just as well (if not better because of font changing) than a paperback. Just as downloadable MP3's will kill CD sales (already in rapid decline), ebooks will have a similar impact on paper. Not a total kill, but definitely such an impact that e-sales will become available in bookstores ultimately, in my opinion.
