      You forgot to mention people don’t read because they’re listening to podcasts!
      In 50 yrs time literary fiction will be back to being purely a female pursuit like it was when the novel emerged. If there is anything outside of academia published that is longer than 50 pages.
      But if literary fiction is dying there is still a massive canon of great writers from the past to be rediscovered.
