Corona’s Effect On The Book Publishing Sector

It is not new to anyone that the coronavirus pandemic affected the global economic situation. The pandemic has had an impact not only on countries as a whole, but also on individuals and various industries around the world.

Early days

Book publishing, like every other creative and cultural sector is not different in this aspect. The crisis has affected authors, publishers, bookshops, and last but not least, readers. Due to Covid-19 the majority of people have been stuck at home in lockdown, with more time to read than before, but the production and distribution of books was slowed down for weeks when the pandemic hit.

As the first wave of the coronavirus reached the western world, bookstores had to close across many countries. This naturally made it harder for the readers to access the books, resulting in a drop in sales. People were not able to visit the shops physically and although the organizations had previously planned to strengthen their e-commerce, in many cases these online services were not perfected yet, so the readers simply could not buy the books. Around the end of March 2020 some booksellers’ sales were down in some cases 85%.

This change severely impacted book publishers’ turnover too. As their main distribution channels were seriously hit, many publishers had to reduce their level of work. What this meant is that numerous new publications were either postponed or cancelled worldwide. Thus, there was already a lot of preparation work put into these titles, which obviously had to be financed. The pandemic has created very challenging circumstances for that, because public events like book fairs also could not be held during the lockdown period. In April 2020, the majority of book publishers were facing liquidity problems.DOES YOUR LIBRARY HAVE PROBLEMS WITH PRINTING?

A new approach

In late spring and early summer 2020 booksellers tried to further strengthen their presence online to make up for the revenue loss. Although this action helped, it did not entirely cover the in-store sales. Customers did not completely convert, but rather found alternatives for store bought books. E-library lending skyrocketed, and it is also suspected the piracy has grown significantly. In research made on the topic, readers suggested that they turned to the books they have already owned, herby reading titles from their collection and avoiding contact during the corona crisis.

Studies show that around 30% of people have read more books or listened to more audiobooks in 2020 compared to the pre-pandemic times. This however has not impacted book sales to a huge extent due to the previously mentioned factors. Further investigation also shows that reading habits shifted more towards accessible online books and e-books, with new users trying digital formats during Covid-19 times. This applies both to entertaining literature and textbooks used for teaching. During 2020 publishers and websites made many educational resources available online to help the learners.

The online-only presence of booksellers during some weeks of the pandemic was inevitable, but it made new authors’ chances of achieving big success very-very low.  It has been a general tendency that it is more difficult for new names to debut, but through an online display it is even harder to create visibility to the new authors, especially when showcased against established ones.

It is also notable that the exact effect of the pandemic on book sales is dependent on the sector and genre. Travel books, educational books and industrial materials naturally suffered a severe loss of sales. On the other hand, with a little time in the lockdown situation, children activity books and novels gained bigger popularity. Data shows that by the end of 2020 the sales in a few segments even outshined the previous year’s performance.

Generally, by the second half of 2020 publishers and bookstores could finally adapt to the new circumstances, and with that the organizations could enhance sales as well. It was also helpful that in many countries coronavirus restrictions were loosened during the summer, allowing people to visit the physical stores. Thanks to this change massive traffic was brought to the stores and to the reopened libraries, especially by the class which only reads physical copies. With good management, many stores could successfully compromise the previous loss of revenue.

Book Publishing And Covid (2)

Looking ahead

It is hard to predict the exact effect of Covid-19 regarding the book publishing industry’s future, but researchers still have a general idea on what the consequences would be. It is predicted that with the interest of the new adapters and the old users, online formats will get more attention in all sorts of book sectors in the future. It is also assumed that even if the buyers want to purchase the physical copies, they will be more prone to doing it online rather than in the actual bookstores.

All in all, we can see that the coronavirus pandemic somewhat damaged the book publishing industry, but in most cases the effect was not deadly for the publishers. They generally did a good job in adapting to the new situation, and fortunately the book sector is not so dependent on advertising to generate sales. It is also the merit of the readers and the book enthusiasts who ensured constant demand, helping the organizations to sort out their initial financial issues. The pandemic, amongst many things thought societies, that books are essential assets that cannot be replaced with anything else.

We will be back next week with another interesting article from the library world!

ከዚህ በፊት ለንባብ የበቁ የደራሲው ስራዎችጋሽ ተሾመ አንጋፋ ፀሐፊ ሲሆኑ ካሁን ቀደም 14 የሕፃናት መፃህፍት፣ 10 በኢትዮጵያ ሙስሊሞች እና በሌሎች ጉዳዮች ላይ የሚያጠነጥኑ መፃሕፍት፣5 ለመድረክ የበቁ ተውኔቶች እንዲሁም 5 ለሕትመት የበቁ ጥናቶችና ምርምሮች አበርክተውልናል። እኝህ አንጋፋ ፀሐፊ ካሳተሟቸው መፃሕፍት የተወሰኑትን በስም ለመጥቀስ ያክል:

የመፅሐፉ አጠቃላይ ጭብጥ

የሌላው የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ ገፅታ አጠቃላይ ጭብጥ በመፅሃፉ መግቢያ ላይ እንዲህ ሰፍሮ እናገኛዋለን፦”

የእየአንዳንዳችን ታሪክ የሁላችንም ታሪክ ነው። የሁላችንም ታሪክ ደግሞ የአንዳችን ነው፤ ስለዚህም እኔም ያንተን ታሪክ ልቀበል፣ አንተም የኔን ታሪክ ተቀበል” ወደሚል አመለካከት መሸጋገር ይኖርብናል። ይህንን መሠረታዊ ጉዳይ፣ እስካሁን ሲደረግ እንደነበረው ወደ ጎን መተው በመላው ኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ ያለውን የህልውና ባህርይን ያናጋል”

በመሆኑም “የይፋት፣ የመኽዙሚ፣ የወላስማ፣ የአዳል፣ የሐረር ወዘተ ሱልጣኔት ታሪክ የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ ሌላው ገፅታ ነው” ይላሉ ጋሽ ተሾመ። ፀሐፊው ስለመፅሐፉ መሠረታዊ ዓላማ በመፅሐፉ መግቢያ ላይ እንዲህ ሲሉ አስፍረዋል፦”

የዚህ መፅሐፍ መሠረታዊ ዓላማ የኢትዮጵያ ሕዝቦች የአንድነት ታሪክ ማውሳት ወደ ቀዳማዊ አንድነታቸው ተመልሰው ጥንታዊ ታሪካቸውን እንዲያድሱ፣ የሕዳሴ እንቅስቃሴያችን በብሔራዊ እርቅ ላይ ሳይሆን በብሔራዊ የሕዝቦች ታሪክ እርቅ ላይ የተመሠረተ መሆኑን እንዲገነዘቡ፣ ወደ ታሪክ እርቅ የሚወስዱት መንገዶች ከብሔራዊ ከሚወስዱት መንገዶች የተሻሉ ሰላማዊና ፍትሐዊ መሆናቸውን አውቀው በጋራ እንዲንቀሳቀሱ ለማድረግ ነው።” (ገፅ 5)

ባጭሩ እንደ ፀሐፊው እምነት የመፅሐፉ መሠረታዊ ዓላማ ህዝቦች ወደ ብሔራዊ የታሪክ እርቅ እንዲመጡ ጥሪ ማድረግ ነው።

ጋሽ ተሾመ “ሌላውን የኢትዮጵያ የታሪክ ገፅታ ለመመልከት ስንችል ሀገሪቱ ያለ ምንም ጥርጥር የኛ የኢትዮጵያውያን ሁሉ ትሆናለች። ሀገር ማለት እኛ ኢትዮጵያውያን ሁሉ ነን። የኢትዮጵያውያን ማንነት ከዚህ ውጭ ሊመደብ አይችልም።” የሚል ፅኑ እምነት አላቸው። (ገፅ 7)

መፅሐፉ ከጥናት ወሰን (scope of study) አንፃር ስንመለከተው ሦስት መሠረታዊ ጉዳዮችን ይሸፍናል:-

➡መጀመሪያ የዛሬይቱን ኢትዮጵያ፣ ኤርትራ፣ ጅቡቲና ሱማሊ በተወሰነ የጊዜ ገደብም ግብፅንና ሱዳንን የሚያካትተው ጥንታዊ የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክን ይዳስሳል

➡በሁለተኛው ክፍል ደግሞ ኢትዮጵያ የገጠማትን የእርስበርስ ጦርነትና በእርሰበርስ ጦርነት ምክንያት የገጠማትን ውድመት ተዳስሶበታል

➡በሶስተኛው ደግሞ የባሕር ላይ ጠብታ የሚል ፅንሰ ሐሳብ በመጠቀም ሌላው የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ ገፅታ conceptually ለማቅረብ ሞክረዋል።ትንሽ ስለ የውሃ ጠብታ ጽንሰ ሐሳብ የዚህ መፅሐፍ ፀሐፊ መፅሐፋቸውን የቀረፁበት (frame) ያደረጉበት ምሁራዊ አተያይ (perspective) የውሃ ጠብታ ጽንሰ ሐሳብ ሲሉ ሰይመውታል። ፀሐፊው “የትልቋን ኢትዮጵያን ሁለት ገፅታ ለማየት ትንሿን የውሃ ጠብታና የምታስከትለውን ውጤት መመልከት ጠቀሚነት አለው” ይላሉ። ጋሽ ተሾመ እንዲህ ይላሉ ባህር ላይ የምትወድቅ የውሃ ጠብታ ከትልቁ ባህር ትልቅነት አንፃር ስንመለከታት እጅግ አነስተኛ ናት ነገር ግን ትንሿ ጠብታ እየሰፋች ስትሄድ እንመለከታለን። ጠብታዋ ቀለበቶች እየሰራች ባህሩን ታዳርሳለች (ገፅ 6 እና 121)። በውሃ ጠብታ የሚመሠለው ሌላው የኢትዮጵያ የታሪክ ገፅታም የመጀመሪያው ቀለበት በምስራቅ ኢትዮጵያ ሐረር ከተማ ላይ ይጀምርና ሌሎች ቀለበቶች እየሰራ በሠሜን እስከ ትግራይ፣ ኤርትራና ጎንደር ፣ በምስራቅ ደግሞ እስከ ጅቡቲና በርበራ፣ በደቡብ እስከ ሱማሊ፣ ባሊና አርሲ እየሰፋ ይሄዳል።(ገፅ 6)መፅሐፉ በሶስት ክፍሎች ተዋቅሮ የቀረበ ሲሆን

ክፍል ❶ ስለ ኢትዮጵያ ታሪክና ትርክት የሚመለከት ሲሆን የመፅሐፉ ጥናታዊ ዳሪ የቀረበበት ነው። በዚህ ምዕራፍ ላይ ደራሲው የተለመደው (በተደጋጋሚ ሲነገር የምንሰማው) ወደ ሰሜን የሚያደላው የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ እንዳለ አቅርበውታል።

ክፍል ⓶ ሁለት ላይ “የጋራ የሆነው የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ” ሲሉ የሚገልፁት የኢትዮጵያ ረጅም የባሕር ንግድ ታሪክ ተካቷል።

ክፍል ⓷ ላይ እስካሁን ሳይነገር የቆየው የኢትዮጵያ ሌላ ገፅታ ታሪክ በዝርዝር ቀርቧል። (I can say this is the missed link in Ethiopia history)። ደራሲው በዚህ መፅሐፍ ላይ አምስት የቀለበት ዙሮች አቅረበዋል፤

❶ የመጀመሪያው ቀለበት ጀበርቲ እና ጀበርቲነት ሲሆን ይህ ቀለበት እስልምና በኢትዮጵያ እንዴት እንደትፋፋ ፍንትው አድርጎ የሚያሳይ ሂደት ነው።

⓶ ሁለተኛው የቀለበት ዙር ደግሞ የንግድ መስመር ሲሆን ሙስሊሞች እንዴትና ምን ያህል የንግድ መስመሩ ተቆጣጥረውት እንደነበሩና ወደ ሀገሪቱ አራት አቅጣጫ እስልምናን እንደዘረጉበት የሚያመላክት ቀለበት ነው።

⓷ዓዲ ከቢረ ሦስተኛው የጠብታ ቀለበት ዙር ነው።

⓸ ኢስላማዊ ባህል፣ ቅርስና ቱሪዝም አራተኛው የጠብታ ቀለበት ዙር ሲሆን በመላው ኢትዮጵያ የሚገኙ ኢስላማዊ ቅርሶች ሙስሊሙን ህብረተሰብ በማስተሳሰር ያላቸው ሚና የሚያሳይ ቀለበት ነው።

⓹ የመጨረሻው የጠብታ ቀለበት ዙር ደግሞ ኢስላማዊ አንድነት የሚያመለክት ነው። ደራሲው ለስራቸውን ማጣቀሻ የሚሆኑት ከ30 በላይ የሚሆኑት ማጠቃሻዎች ተጠቅመዋል። በተለይ እነደነ ቸሩሊ፣ሃበርላንድ እና ሌሎች አንትሮፖሎጂስቶች ያደረጓቸውን የመስክ ጥናቶች በዋቢነት ተጠቅመዋል።እንደ መደምደሚያ ጋሽ ተሾመ በዚህ ሌላው የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ ገፅታ በተሰኘው መፅሐፋቸው ላይ በተደጋጋሚ ከምንሰማቸው፣ በታሪክ ትምህርት መፃሕፍት ላይ ጎልተው ተጠቅሰው ከምናያቸው የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ ውጭ ያሉ የተረሱ፣ የተዘነጉ እና የተተዉ የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ ፅፈውልናል። ግማሹ የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ ላይ ሌላ ግማሽ በመጨመር የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ ሙሉ ምስል እንዲይዝ ሲጥሩ ይስተዋላል። ከለመድናቸው የአክሱም፣ የጎንደር፣ የሰሎሞናዊ ዘመነ መንግስት ውጭ ያለው የኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ በኢትዮጵያ ታሪክ ውስጥ እንዲወከል (represent) እንዲሆን ምሁራዊ ጥሪ ያደርጋሉ። የኢትዮጵያ ህዝቦች ወደ ብሔራዊ የታሪክ እርቅ (በታሪክ ላይ መስማማት) መምጣት አለባቸው ሲሉ በፅኑ ይከራከራሉ። ይህ መፅሐፍ ታሪክን አቅቦ ከማስቀመጥ (documentation) በተጨማሪ የታሪክ ተመራማሪዎች ከተለመደው የኢትዮጵያ ተሪክ ገፅታ ውጭ ያለው ሌላው ታሪካችንን እንዲመራመሩ እንዲፈትሹ ያነሳሳል ብዬ አስባለሁ። የዚህ መፅሐፍ ደካማ ጎኖች የምዕራፎች አደረጃጀት እና የዋቢ መፃሕፍት አጠቃቀስ ላይ ነው። ምዕራፎች በወጉ አልተደራጁም። ዋቢ ስራዎች አጠቃቀስ ላይ ቸልተኝነት ይታያል ይህ መስተካከል አለበት።

Despite security Challenges & so many sad stories in East Wollega Zone of Oromia, the two brothers Bikila and Lalisa Dani’el came up with a wonderful creativity and made an air craft. They made a plane branded `Oromia` from scrap-metals & locally available materials. The brothers their maiden flight a couple weeks ago. Another great news is Bikila & Lelisa visited Ethiopian Airlines (EAL) today. They met the EAL technicians and the pilot training center. They observed a plane taking off and landing. The two brothers are happy with what they observed and vowed to realize their dream making and flying an Oromia plane.
