As its now the festive season the elves that provide the books in Tarvin library have to take a break from their usual tasks to ensure they deliver in time all the electronic books ordered for Christmas!
The Daily Telegraph reports that 'sales of e-readers surged 45 per cent in the run-up to Christmas, as data from Neilsen BookScan indicated that sales of printed books fell by £74m. Total physical book sales of £1.5billion were also hurt by heavy discounting'
