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'
E-books only account for approximately 14 per cent of the total market so 86% of the market still buy hard copies of books!
There is no better place to get your books than Tarvin Library but you have to wait as the Library will close for Christmas from Thursday 19th December and re-open on Thursday 2nd January 2014
