But he says some are ready to take it on. "I think even somewhere in their gut they know that these uncomfortable, awkward, stumbling dialogues are absolutely necessary. She says a diverse workforce is good for business and the culture at large.

Like an assembly line stuck in high gear, the U. Of all those believed at risk, only the bookshops have actually suffered serious damage. The New York Times notes that this is the most accurate publishing industry survey yet, including data from a wide range of publishers and book genres. THE SITUATION IS GETTING WORSE, QUICKLY Before we explain the accounting rationale behind the $330 million do-it-ourselves bailout, let's look at a looming 'perfect storm' threatening bookstores and publishers: Sales levels for printed books, already stagnant, are beginning to fall, and consumers are also trending toward buying more online and in big box stores, rather than in the local bookstores; The costs for printed books will increase, as the full environmental impact (such as carbon taxes) is assessed on papermaking, printing and shipping [the pulp and paper industry is the third largest industrial polluter of air, water and land in North America]; Consumers are increasingly buying digital versions to read on their Kindles, iPhones, netbooks, etc., yet publishers are struggling to find ways to adequately 'monetize' [make money from] digital sales, hampered because distribution is so fragmented and formats are varied; The Harper government would welcome any pretext to slash its $39.5 million-plus subsidies to Canadian publishers, and voters won't be too supportive about propping up an industry once word spreads that publishers and booksellers are wasting over $300 Million every year; Publishing houses now have less power in distribution channels [Chapters-Indigo has such a dominant retail store position in Canada and Amazon controls so much online sales, that the two giants can dictate unique terms]; Publishers have lost their favoured place in publicity [remember when newspapers had whole sections of lengthy book reviews?] in the clutter of this Web 2.0 world; Returnability leads to overprinting, long delays in payment and other uncertainty; and At some point, consumers will become aware of the horrendous environmental impact caused by overprinting, and may express their displeasure by buying fewer printed books [possibly even staging boycotts to demand more responsible behaviour].

Bookselling not only increasingly takes place online, but e-books are growing in popularity; this means that the definition of “book sale” has changed from that of a physical interaction in a bricks-and-mortar location between customer and cashier to something more akin to an online file transfer.
