Just a few years ago, e-books started a reading revolution. As Kindles, Kobos, Nooks and iPads flooded the market, digital book sales skyrocketed, putting publishers and booksellers into a panic. But a pricing war with Amazon, paired with rapid changes in digital consumption, hasn’t produced the upheaval once predicted on our bookshelves. With e-book sales down 10 percent this year alone, booksellers and publishers are breathing new life into their print operations — and a collective sigh of relief. Kojo explores why going digital hasn’t completely taken off with readers, what it means for bookstores, and what’s next in this dynamic industry.
