Publishing Industry Needs Longer School Holidays…?

According to the title of a Bookseller article:

“Printed books fall £2.8m as kids go back to school.”

Sales dropped 11%, apparently with children returning to school and adults getting back to work after the spring break (we get spring breaks?). Sadly, I can’t read any more of the article than that, because I’m not a Bookseller subscriber, but I would like to think this is a good sign – if people are reading more during their holidays, this must be a good thing for the publishing industry, with the Easter and Summer holidays coming up.
