The future of books – PM programme BBC Radio 4

 Angus Phillips, Director of the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies at Oxford Brookes, was interviewed on the PM programme on BBC Radio 4 on Tuesday 20 July about the growth of ebooks and the future of the publishing industry. He was interviewed alongside John Sutherland, Emeritus Lord Northcliffe Professor of Modern English Literature at University College London. The discussion was in response to the news from Amazon in the US that for the last three months, sales of books for the Kindle outnumbered sales of hardcover books.
