Encyclopedia Britannica Will be Printed no More — What Paper Product Will be Next? [Poll]
There will be one less salesperson knocking on your door now that Encyclopedia Britannica has announced they will no longer be publishing the print version of the Encyclopedia.
They have around 4,000 printed sets remaining in their current stock which they will continue to sell until they’re gone (I’m guessing most will be purchased by collectors pretty quickly). You can still access the reliable Encyclopedia database online. An online subscription costs around $70 per year and they have apps for your phone ranging between $1.99 and $4.99 per month (unlike the free services such as Wikopedia, Encyclopedia Britanica’s facts are checked, checked and rechecked again).
As more and more companies stop printing traditional paper products, which product do you think will be next to go? Take our poll below! I think it will (ok, it SHOULD) be the phone book. Does anybody actually still use those to find numbers anymore? (Put your hand down John Williams.)
