Veekshita Chaluvan Posted about 3 years ago How do you see the future of literature? Do yo think that shorter forms such as poetry and microstories will gain more weight? I agree with this...maybe even more than reading people will start listening to books. We have audio-books these days and they're preferred because they're on the go. So if you can multitask, like someone else said, why would you not be interested in what the book has to offer? But it's hard to listen to something with all your attention while you're focusing on something else, so fiction will probably rule the future. Maybe.
