Flipbacks: “The Next Little Thing”?

It’s being advertised as a cellphone-sized printed book.

What it is: a landscape-formatted book printed on tissue-thin paper so it weighs less than, say, a mass-market paperback.

It’s already been introduced in Europe. Will it catch on in the United States? Does the public need yet another book format? If so, will libraries be expected to stock them?

We’ll see.
