The e-book had its moment, but sales are slowing. Readers still want to turn those crisp, bound pages, writes Nicholas Carr.
" The growth in e-book sales is slowing markedly. And purchases of e-readers are actually shrinking, as consumers opt instead for multipurpose tablets. It may be that e-books, rather than replacing printed books, will ultimately serve a role more like that of audio books—a complement to traditional reading, not a substitute."
