ESL English Lesson: E-books to outsell printed books in UK by 2018
David Robinson

E-books are set to outsell printed books in the UK by 2018. Sales are expected to triple over the next four years while sales of printed books will rapidly decline. This is according to a report by accounting group PwC.

The UK consumer e-book market, which excludes professional and educational books – is forecast to almost triple from £380m to £1bn over the next four years. Over the same period PwC predicts sales of printed editions will fall by more than a third to £912m as the UK‘s reading habits become dominated by tablets. PwC expect 50% of the UK to own an iPad, Kindle or a similar device by 2018.

Questions: 1) What is an e-book? 2) Who is Nigel Newton? 3) What is a ‘Kindle’? 4) What is ‘Amazon’? 5) What is ‘an iPad’? Gap fill: Reading, Gap fill: Grammar, Homework: Write and send a 200 word email to your teacher about: E-books v printed books in my country. Your email can be read out in class.
