Book Industry is Shifting...

Noticed something interesting this week!

In going over the details of my royalties, I noticed a change.

EBook sales had almost tripled.

Library sales of print books had increased.

Retail sales of print books had dropped.

EBook sales are on the rise - that's a given. But this also says something about our economy. More people are choosing EBooks (when they are cheaper) or going to their library (free books) rather than buy print books. Or maybe with fewer stores, they have no choice.

Curious if any of my readers or followers are seeing such a trend, too?
