Post-Scarcity Entertainment

Futurismic contemplates the post-scarcity entertainment landscape:

In a world so full of entertainment choices that you could probably spend your entire life reading or listening or watching without ever having to repeat yourself, how do you choose what to enjoy next?

I take advantage of some methods of generating artificial scarcity: buying used books instead of new (reducing the selection, at least for me) or reading library books by the three-week deadline instead of my own books.
