Dead Tree Books Aren't Dead Yet According To Readers

You just won't listen.
Panzer made a quick trip to The New York Times site. Our speedy kitty boy found some interesting information about the resurrection of print books.

According to a post by Alexandra Alter, publishers' ebook sales are declining and their print book sales are increasing.


Although it's buried halfway into the post, under publishers' new contracts with Amazon they can set their own ebook prices. And ... they're setting them high enough that they almost match print (hardback) prices and they're much higher than paperback prices. So ... of course publishers' ebook sales are declining.

Panzer says, "You humans still aren't listening. I already explained the less is more rule to you."

Note: This is an e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y l-o-n-g post. You better bring a thermos of tea and two days worth of muffins.
