  • The market value of printed books has grown over the past few years in the US, while the e-book market has decreased. This is a result of Amazon’s aggressive price strategies on print books, after losing control of e-book pricing which is also influenced by publishers. Subsequently, print books sales have gone up as their price went down, but the e-books market was inversely affected.
