Reading and living the moment has been around since the early days of the mankind. Reading materials evolved with time and today the time has come where the content is available on the World Wide Web.
The World Wide Web is the network that provides connectivity access to the world, to connect and discover. The invasion of the World Wide Web turned the table upside-down.
Before the boom of the digital space and E-commerce era, the publishing industry dominated the market. E-commerce has changed the way people read and gathered information.
E-commerce is all about sale through online means. This has affected the publishing industry. Now people skip the part of a publisher. They don’t have to be a part of the print expenses. Their sales are easily done by selling the copies online. The use of graphics texts has made it one level easier for the writer. We’re noticing that there has been a considerable change in the publishing industry. We also notice that the impact of E-Commerce on publishing industry is largely penetrating amongst the world.
In one of her publications; Maureen O’Connell, Scholastic has mentioned ‘The history of books and the changes we’ve seen in the last decade to how we read and create them are strong reminders of what we’ve always known: that reading, no matter the format, is a way for humanity to connect, to communicate, to evolve and share and learn.’
Commerce has emerged as a very powerful contender in book-selling and publishing industry. Online shopping applications and websites have eased the purchasing process for avid readers. Although a physical book reading feels way different than reading digitally, it is still convenient when books and content are purchased through electronic commerce websites and dealers.
We can’t predict the future but we can surely throw a dart by assuming that E-Commerce industry could be the reason for us to notice a steep decline in the graph of the publishing industry.
