But our friends in book publishing aren't persuaded.
The description of a session at the Digital Book World 2017 conference about thriving “in an area of constant change” concludes: “Maybe things aren’t so bad: Just look at the newspaper/magazine publishing industry!”
Humph, as if we're part of the same industry as newspapers!
Nor is the U.S. Census Bureau persuaded: It reports that, during the first nine months of 2016, revenue for magazine publishers declined 4.4% while newspaper publishers were down only 3.1%.
Hey, but at least our Facebook Likes are growing. And we're not changing the names of our companies to something that "sounds like the noise an ejaculating elephant makes."
