In Great Britain, sales of real books are rebounding and outpacing sales of e-books, according to UK researchers.
Because you can show off a real book. You cannot show off an e-book.
So, it is all about image?
Apparently that is the case. Sales of print books are forecast to rise by 25 percent in the next five years, a story by Katie Morley pubished last week says.
E-books are declining this year for the first time.
The simple truth is that people aren't necessarily reading more print books. They are shelving them so people think they've read them.
When you think about it, this is really kind of pathetic.
