Fair and Balanced

In contrast to the news from the NEA about adult reading, here’s some more sobering info from Publishers Weekly:

November bookstore sales were as bad as people thought they were. Preliminary figures from the U.S. Census Bureau show that sales dropped 13% in the month, falling to $1.05 billion. Sales for all of retail were off 10%. For the 11 month period, bookstore sales were flat at $14.8 billion, while sales for the entire retail segment fell 0.7%.

Gulp.
