BBC News Item on the Crisis of Book Publishing

From the article: “The printed book risks going the way of the cuneiform tablet, papyrus scroll or vellum parchment, say the doomsayers….but despite the huge growth in e-books in the past few years, the traditional publishing houses are not yet predicting the end of printed book.

In fact, figures for 2012 show that while e-book sales are still on the rise, the rate of decline in print sales has actually slowed.”
