It's summer time and the living is......
Whilst there are many pleasures to the summer months, there is no better way to relax than crashing on a beach, or lounging in your garden with a good book. And yet apparently book sales drop during the summer - Historically, the book publishing industry has 3 seasons: winter, spring, and autumn (fall), and in 2015 a survey in the New Yorker Magazine stated that more people have a summer streaming list than a summer reading list.
And if that depresses you then join the club - the thing is you get more from reading than viewing. Reading is active, while viewing is passive.
