eBooks and the Publishing Industry Statistics

Here is a handy chart from The Content Wrangler about the impact of digital publishing on the publishing industry.

Several interesting statistics:

– Amazon.com is the preferred site for buying ebooks, capturing 38% of sales

– but the preferred eReader is the Apple iPad, at 25% of respondents

– and 30% state the biggest challenge for the ebook industry is “content format and device capability issues.”

The full chart can be found here.


UPDATE: Another useful infographic, “Is There Money in eBooks?” is available at NowNovel.com. Thanks to Brendan for pointing this one out!


About The Amrah Publishing House

We are a small publishing venture that specializes in light-hearted literature, both fiction and non-fiction. We don't see literature as divided between escapism and realism, but rather aim to bring the benefits of both to our readers. Our stories will connect with your lived experience, while lifting you out of the daily grind as you read. Our most recent release is an illustrated storybook about Edmonton's history - a story that is more than the individual story of one family, but rather a story that connects us to a city we all share. This little booklet is by sisters Harma-Mae Smit (writer) and Paulina Van Vliet (illustrator) about a house in #yeg and how the world changes around it. This is a great book to teach your children about urban sprawl! And it's a great way for city-dwellers to connect more deeply with the city in which they live. We've previously published short pieces of fiction as ebooks as well. Keep on top of our latest offerings by following us at amrahpublishinghouse.com.
