The article looks at the impact of technology on the publishing industry in Great Britain. Legal and academic publishing is thoroughly digitized. But while the digital audio market is showing distinct signs of life, there is no serious market for e-books. A recent survey revealed that using the Internet is now the favorite occupation of retired Britons. Comments from Peter Bowron of Random House are included.
