Our family recently spent time in Manhattan. We took several books with us, and this was the one we found most useful. It's not perfect -- I found myself flipping pages a lot to connect restaurants and attractions etc, but it was still so loaded with good info that I always took it with me when we went out.

Silly me. Go to Amazon. So is the guide book dead? With the rise of travel apps and mobile devices, we have new ways of sourcing and carrying our information around. Perhaps guide book buyers are a dying breed.
And there are other companies out there still seeking the services of guide book writers — I know that for sure! Meanwhile, there are blogs and apps and all manner of new forms of writing to explore. I stopped writing for major metro dailies a few years ago when I saw the writing on the wall. Every time I take my boys to the library and I sniff in that wonderful book smell, I wonder if my boys will still have these when they have children. There has to be a point at which the pendulum swings back, right?

Give me paper anyday. Oh I will miss guide books too … already miss the thick travel sections in the newspapers.
A sign of the times I guess. It would go into the eighth tutorial on guide book writing, writing apps and writing blogs. Actually, your blog is a great example of that form too so it would be doubly good to be able to link to it and might bring you some more followers.
