Tingle Alley points out an article in Newsweek that says
Could it be? Americans are spending less time at the movies because they’re too busy — reading. In May (as “Kingdom of Heaven” bombed), sales of adult hardcovers jumped 29.6 percent, adult paperbacks 18.4 percent and children’s hardcovers 21.2 percent over the same period in 2004, reports the Association of American Publishers.
But it doesn’t give a link to the rest of the article. I thought Newsweek was all online? Maybe not. Tingle also notes:
The snippet is reported next to a series of thumbnail covers of five books that have been adapted for movies set for release this fall, including Memoirs of a Geisha, Everything Is Illuminated and Annie Proulx’s Brokeback Mountain. Because you know, the only reason to be interested in books is how they relate to movies.
