Because if you're just reading, you're not buying stuff

If a few critters or plants in a shrinking ecosystem die off that's a concern, but it doesn't mean the whole place is doomed.
However, if the big animals go south, that's trouble.

"It’s believed that Wal-Mart generates about 20% of all retail magazine sales in the U.S. — so dropping a thousand titles is a major problem for the publishing industry. The big question is this: will Wal-Mart dedicate more display space for fast-moving magazines in an effort to turn more inventory, or will magazine sections in Wal-Mart stores be downsized to make room for more lucrative, higher-margin products? The answer will be coming soon to a Wal-Mart near you."

Well not near me. It's one of the things I like about where I live.
