It's interesting that reading a book has become news
It's funny how after your post @Chris shares a news report about the print industry recovering after the apparent short popularity of e-books. I guess reading a book really is news 😂.
As for Chris' link, I think it's just the way the world works, in cycles. In the older days people relied on food, herbs, and natural remedies for health. Then the pharmaceutical age came, and people relied on drugs and supplements for health. Now, people are reverting back to healthy foods and natural remedies instead of pharmaceuticals. The same happened with the book industry I guess. People got excited about the potential of e-books, and digital versions of books they could read on their phone, but as we realised that we're spending too much time looking at screens, people wanted to go back to good old paper and read books instead.
So much so that in Malaysia, we have our first ever 24-hour bookstore that opened last year.
