That observation is more intelligent than anything raised in that guy's article. But keep in mind that's primarily about ebooks. Discounts are heavier and more widely available for books as a whole than they've ever been, as is access to used books online. Paying full cover price for paper books, still the majority of sales, is pretty much dead.
