'Screen fatigue' sees UK ebook sales plunge 17% as readers return to print - The Guardian

I hate thunder and lightening.
We've been having thunder storms all afternoon, so Panzer's trip into the Catosphere was very short. Our brave kitty stopped in at The Guardian site. There he found a post about the decline in ebook sales in the UK.

According to the post at The Guardian, 2016 ebook sales declined by 17 percent in the Uk. One of the main reasons mentioned in the post is consumers switching from ereaders to smartphones. Smartphone screens are not as easy to read on as ereader screens. Along with the lack of ease of use of smartphones is the fact children's books are more appropriate in printed form. The post includes other reasons for the decline as well.

Panzer says, "Sorry about the short trip, but the Panzermobile isn't soundproof."

Note: This is a v-e-r-y l-o-n-g post. Bring a thermos of tea and a half dozen cookies (biscuits) for today's reading selection.
