Ebook sales continue to fall as younger generations drive appetite for print - The Guardian

Panzer's trip into the Catosphere today took our adventuresome kitty to The Guardian site. With just a little digging he found a post about UK ebook sales.

According to the post by Sian Cain, quoting from the Nielsen Book Research UK, ebook sales were down in the U.K. in 2016. Ebook sales fell 4 perceent for the year while physical book sales were up by 2 percent. The increase in print sales in 2016 was due to children's physical book sales. This is the second year of physical book sales increase. The increase in 2015 was due to adult coloring book sales.

Hmm ... Are print books coming back?
Panzer says, "Maybe ebook authors should pay attention to what's happening in the U.K. It just might be spreading."

Note: This is a long post. Bring a cup of tea and one and a half muffins for today's reading selection.
