Now people in the early twenty-second century will know how boring literature was in the early twenty-first:
Margaret Atwood has become the first of 100 authors to submit work to a project called the "Future Library".
The project will see one work of fiction from a different writer being added to a collection each year, until they are all published in 2114.
Future Library was created by Scottish artist Katie Paterson and the writings will be kept in trust in Oslo, Norway.
One thousand trees have been planted outside the city for the paper on which the works will eventually be printed.
