E-sales Resume Uptrend With A Vengeance
Book2Book Tuesday 21 Sep 2010
E-book sales statistics for July 2010 have been released by the International Digital Publishing Forum which collects them in conjunction with the Association of American Publishers, and if there was ever a tremor of doubt (we had one last month) it has been well and truly erased by the news of an all-time record-breaking month.
Trade eBook sales were $40,800,000 for July, a 250% increase over the previous July's $16,300,000. The previous high was $31,900,000.
