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!
