New Stats: Book Publishing is Growing; E-Book Revs and Sales Up Over 1000%

BookStats a new annual statistical survey of raw sales revenue and unit data provided by nearly 2,000 publishers… shows a lot of bright spots for the U.S. book publishing industry. Book sales are expanding, not shrinking. Between 2008 and 2010, total revenues and sale units grew for the publishing industry as a whole, while e-book revenue for trade publishers increased by 1274 percent year on year. And the data does not even account for the e-book sales surge in 2011.
