A Return to Print? Not Exactly
Ebooks are not taking over the world! That seems pretty clear from a Pew Research Center survey released last week, which showed that the percentage of Americans who read digital books hasn't risen since 2014.
The survey didn't show any real sign of a print resurgence either, though. Overall, the percentage of Americans consuming books in any form appears to be trending modestly downward. By holding steady, e-books are thus gaining a bit of ground over print.
This is not exactly the "return to print" story that the nation's book publishers have been telling lately.
