New Yorker Magazine Cover - Fiction Edition
The cover of the current New Yorker magazine features an intriguing take on the future of reading.
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
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
