Roy Johnson, in his review of Nicholas Negroponte's book, said:

This is probably a function of currently outrageously high paper prices.
The cost of paper has shot up since last fall, slicing publishers' margins,
if you'll pardon me, paper-thin. At IDG Books, we've investigated several
avenues to reduce our suddenly exorbitant paper costs, I'm sure including
using cheap, thin stock. We still use decent-quality paper, though.

Peace,
