There is not an industry not affected by the corona-virus. It’s something no one of our day have ever seen. It’s stated that eBook sales increased during knockdown. Take a look at all the physical bookstores still closed or just now opening. Reopening right on the heel of the flu season while it’s expected we will have to deal with the seasonal flu and the corona-virus. I hope the flu does not make things worst.
The lock down shut down bookstores and other in-person industries resulting in some publishers doubled downing on paper books and unfortunately lost fortunes. I am a huge fan of paper books but I can’t understand printing more while people are in lock-down. I assumed they anticipated more people would order them.
More traditional publishers are publishing eBooks than ever before.
