(i) The print culture gave birth to new forms of popular literature. Very small books were brought out. They were sold cross roads. The poor people brought these books and read with great interest. Books were cheap, even the poor could afford to buy them. Public libraries were set up. 

(ii) The print culture made the women important, as readers as well as writers. Women’s reading increased enormously in middle class homes. Liberal husbands and fathers began educating their women folk at home and send them to schools. Women’s schools were set up.
