Some 12 million e-readers were sold last year, a steep drop from the nearly 20 million sold in 2011, according to Forrester Research. The portion of people who read books primarily on e-readers fell to 32 percent in the first quarter of 2015, from 50 percent in 2012, a Nielsen survey showed.
Higher e-book prices may also be driving readers back to paper."

Can be used once per day!:



Oops, darn it, I didn't use it on a print book but a CD-Rom version of: Fear, Loathing, and Victorian Xenophobia by Marlene Tromp. ARgh, well, they may cancel my use of the code and charge full price, but that's okay, I'll try with an actual paper book tomorrow! ;)
