Harper Collins boss: 'People still want physical books'

The boss of publishers Harper Collins says that despite the growth of e-readers, people still want physical books.

Charlie Redmayne claims the industry can use both e-readers and books to give authors "more ways of telling stories."

However the publishing boss believes physical books will stand the test of time.

Speaking with BBC Radio 5 live's Wake Up to Money, Mr Redmayne said: "We've seen the growth in e-books just coming off a little bit... people still want to have those physical books."
