Book burning on the internet

A 62 pound "velvet and marble" book would be pretty tough to burn, not that you should ever to burn a book, much less a $100,000 book on Michelangelo.

"I love books," Marilena Ferrari, the Italian publisher who produced the extravagance, said in a telephone interview from Bologna, Italy, where she's president of a company called FMR, which publishes fine books about art.

"Books are being destroyed by the Internet, they're losing their identity — it's the modern, Internet version of burning books," she said. "Today, things last so little before they disappear. "

Most expensive new book arrives in NY from Italy - Yahoo! News

UNESCO tracks the number of books published per year per country to measure "an important index of standard of living and education, and of the country's self-awareness."

It looks like Harry Potter has the US beat, in 2005 at least.

  • United Kingdom (2005) 206,000 [2]
  • United States (2005) 172,000 [2]
  • China (1994) 100,951 [3]
  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Books_published_per_country_per_year

    If they included e-books or blogs in their count what would change?

    Note:
    1. For STRICT Whitehat sites, it is advised to create buffers to pass on linkjuice. i.e. social bookmarks, cloaked pages etc.
    You can blast the site directly, but it entails risk.
    Using buffers are 100% safe, speaking from experience.
