Reading booms during lockdown

Lockdown has provided more time for people huddled up at home to open up a book and read more. In fact, Bloomsbury Publishing has revised up profits for the second time this year. Calling reading a ray of sunshine during the dark times of the pandemic, Bloomsbury chief executive Nigel Newton stated that February saw an exceptional sales performance for the company.
