The Future of Books?

So, picture books are dead and libraries don't need books, but we hear today that college textbooks are alive and well?

I'd like to think all of these articles are a result of slow news days, but with less than two weeks to the midterm elections and confusion about what's included in the First Amendment, it feels like journalists might be focusing on the wrong things.

Can't we just all agree that the publishing industry is undergoing a lot of change due to advances in technology and the economic crisis and that we're not yet sure where the chips will fall in the end?
