With the summer holidays being here, time for a holiday related story. As some of the more well travelled readers of the blog will recognise, Lonely Planet publish a range of travel guides for countries across the globe. No self-respecting traveller would leave the country without a copy of the relevant Lonely Planet guide tucked under their arm. However, things are on the wane at Lonely Planet; book sales have been declining and a number of staff writers and editors have been laid off. (See Sunday Times 28th July 2013.) Some commentators are blaming the rise of the travel app. Why buy a book when you can download an app to your phone and away you go?
