The Novel Is Dead

Inspiring Book & Paper Sculptures

Entertaining article listing all the times the novel has been pronounced dead since 1902. That's thirty times, in case you're wondering.

I can go one better than that. Here's a guy who predicted the end of books (wrong), losing out to television (right) even before television had been invented! Octave Uzanne, back in 1894.

Can we all just agree that novels are about as likely to die as reality TV shows? And I'd mourn the latter far less.
