    New formats, mixed media supplanting traditional novels?

    oops, that should read "supplanting"

    I think this is fast becoming an issue in MG and YA and will eventually find it's way into picture books as devices incorporate more than digital ink, but instead are audio/video capable and internet ready.

    A quote from my blog post today on the issue:

    Without a doubt, we are well along in a revolution where the written, printed word is becoming heavily encroached upon by images, video and audio content. And while traditional novels (both paper and ebook) will be around for a long time to come, they will have to compete more and more with stories that incorporate mixed media.

    What do you think?
