Who cares about Print?

In today's society we take granted how we receive our information, especially in today media, it is given to the public by the computer. During the early 1700's print became very huge with many people had the need to read and write. At the time "Europe royal courts were the centers of high culture and writers looked to royal and aristocratic patrons for material support and prestige". Reading was such a high demand because everyone wanted to read or be a writer. Nowadays you cant get much people to read unless they had to and i feel if we were to realize how difficult it was to get a book and to put it together, maybe today would could appreciate print a little more.

Why do you think that "wanted to read or be a writer" in the 18th century? What were these "needs" for reading and righting? Why don't we have those needs today?
