New Yorker Magazine Cover - Fiction Edition

The cover of the current New Yorker magazine features an intriguing take on the future of reading.

http://archives.newyorker.com/?i=2009-06-08

An alien sits amidst the wreckage of various electronic reading/storage devices (a shattered Kindle 1 prominently in the foreground) reading a dead tree book.

Sort of a cosmic "I told you so" from publishers?

without reading the article it's hard to interpret the picture.
it can be explained both ways

pro e-readers
1) if humans don't adapt to ereaders, the only people who'd read in the future are aliens, as earth has become a dead place and humans are extinct

pro dead books
ereaders can't outlive books
