According to Publisher’s Weekly, this January more e-books were sold in the U.S. than either hardcover or paperback books!
E-book sales jumped 115.8% to $69.6 million, while sales of mass market paperbacks fell 30.9% to $39 million. Hardcover books ?only sold $49.1 million for the month.
I predict that e-book sales will soon exceed both paperback and ?hardcover sales combined.
The Kindle has caught on, though I haven’t caught the fever yet; I’d still rather read a physical book.
How about you?
