From papyrus to pixels

The growth rate of e-books has recently slowed in many markets. Publishers now expect most of their sales to remain in print books for decades to come – some say for ever.

There are a number of reasons. One is that the print book is „a really competitive technology“: it is portable, hard to break, has high-resolution pages and a „long battery life“.


Sales of e-readers, the most popular of which is the Kindle, are in decline. „In a few years‘ time, we will look back at e-readers and remember them as one of the shortest-lived of all consumer media devices.“

The Economist, October 11th 2014, p 47
