UK Publishers Going Bust at Fast Pace

Print isn’t dead. It just lives on in used bookstores aided by internet sales through Amazon. As a result, publishers, who would rather customers purchase new copies (i.e. higher-priced versions) of, well, old books from the publisher rather than from among the used books easily searched on Amazon, are going out of business. Of course, publishers of periodicals have been hard hit too as the above article points out.

Everything is expected to be available for free on the internet these days, and, if you want print, you go to Amazon or Alibris.
