E content continues to outsell print

July 21, 2011

From today’s Publisher’s Weekly: 

All major adult print segments–hardcover, paperback and mass market–showed a decline in sales in May, according to the AAP’s monthly sales report. While e-books showed a steep uptick of 146.9% for the month, bringing in $73.4 million in sales, adult hardcovers dropped 38.2%, adult paperbacks dropped 14.3%, and adult mass market fell 39.4%. For the calendar year, e-books brought in $389.7 million in sales, a 160.1% climb over the same period 2010.

Are print sales down because libraries are the suppliers?
