    Nate,
    O dear where to begin? Publishing companies don’t sell books, there in the distribution of transformed lumber products. I bet that the big 5 are major owners of paper and forestry companies

    The linked article on the price of paper is very specifically about coated paper used in glossy magazines, not the uncoated paper used in most books. This in turn is, as the article explains, happening because many paper mills have stopped producing coated paper due to drop in demand. They overshot, resulting in a shortage.
