On the Media: Book It

On the Media is one of my favorite NPR shows, I like to listen if I'm working on the weekends. This weekend they replayed a great recent show about the book industry, check it out here.

There are some very reassuring words from the founder of Publisher's Marketplace. He says recent book sales aren't really all that different than usual, even with e-books in the mix, and on the whole book publishing has taken a much smaller hit than other industries in this economy.
