2012 was not the year of the printed book.

In a mass societal trend, electronic everything rules - and the classic, (actual) page-turning adventures of reading are on a steady fall.

According to Publishers Weekly, sales of literary works in print form - including fiction, nonfiction, and all sorts - fell over 9 percent last year.

Nielsen BookScan, which successfully tracks and compiles sales from bookstores and online market places, reported that the number was in-line with the sales rate between 2010 and 2011. Since 2010, sales have continued to dip to under 16 percent.

Adult nonfiction took the biggest hit, where units sold fell 13 percent, while young adult works saw a slight boost of 5.4 percent in sales for the year.
