I’m not sure whether any of us pro-ebook pundits was actually expecting the death of the printed book, but it seems a lot of people thought we were. So much so that Book Patrol has decided it should proclaim that “The Worst is Over and The Book is not Dead.”

Rumors of the rumors of the death of the book were greatly exaggerated, maybe. I’m sure the book’s relatives and family are breathing a sigh of relief outside the OR.

So perhaps some people are jumping to correct a caricature impression here, but when it comes with such a funky infographic, who really cares? Now the death of the traditional publishing industry business model, that’s a different question. Walking dead hunt coming soon…
