Physical book sales falling rapidly in UK

Posted on by Mike Evans

More evidence that physical book sales are plummeting comes from The Telegraph. Sales of printed books in Britain fell by a dramatic 25 percent to only four million in January 2012 compared with the same month last year.

Throughout the world physical books are in a steady decline and electronic books are filling the void. It is now only a matter of time before e-readers become the norm and physical books are a rarity. And at this reate of decline the point of no return will come sooner rather than later. Book chains and high-street book stores are already under intense pressure and I cannot see them lasting much longer.
