      There will always be a market niche but the long trend is undeniable. Physical books are very quickly moving from shelves to pulp.

      Oh, I absolutely agree Jeffrey. I just hope, and honestly believe, that niche will continue to be filled with small, well-run, innovative local bookshops. In fact, I think it is an improvement to see the chains disappear and the locals reassert themselves in an even more interesting way.

      Every time I go in Lemuria, I find a really interesting book that I never would have found on the internet because they are all readers and they highlight great writing.

      I find this trend to be similar to the records/vinyls.
