"Internet users are more likely to cut back on reading books than to curtail their magazine consumption, according to a recently released survey by Jupiter Research. The finding contradicts the long-held assumption that periodicals are more vulnerable than books to competition from the Internet." (Registration is required by the NY Times web site.)”
