American Book Publishing No Longer American

Eric Weiner writes about the almost complete takeover by the Europeans of our largest publishing houses. He throws in some sad data about the status of American book reading, and predicts that the last two major American publishers are soon to be gobbled up, perhaps by European conglomerates as well. His conclusion?

"...the U.S. commercial publishing industry is going the way of the Dodo bird."
