Book Industry Under Microscope

Unfortunately, I tend to toss out the newspapers as I read them, and I tend to read them up to a week after they were printed; but there’s no denying that the book industry has experienced a lot of coverage in Canada’s leading newspaper, The Toronto Star. A story on a specialty Women’s bookstore that’s closing. A story on a store that was the ‘set’ for a viral YouTube video. A story on a bookseller who felt the heart of bookselling was lost online, and went back to having a physical location. A report on the deal being struck by Google Books to access titles of several major publishers. And all this in the past two weeks.

For an industry some consider ‘down for the count,’ we certainly seem to fascinate the press.
