Demise Of Books Exaggerated, Even In Malaysia

As part of World Book and Copyright day, we speak to Chong Ton Sin, founder of Gerakbudaya, and Amir Muhammad, founder of Buku FIXI on the business of books. We also ask if there is a culture of reading in Malaysia, what are the challenges for independent publishers, and most importantly, content censorship in the book industry. Background image credit:
