EBooks Settling (?) and S & S Titles Being Added to Sno-Isle

December 15, 2014

According to a Nielsen Books & Consumers survey reported by PW, eBook sales accounted for 21% of sales from January 1 through September 30 of this year, which is a slight dip from the first half of the year. Paperbacks rose a bit to 43% and hardcovers were steady at 25%.  E-retailers claimed 39% of the eBook market, while Amazon alone apparently sold to 57% of reporting eBook consumers in that nine months.

By the way, you may have noticed we now have Simon & Schuster titles in both 3M and OverDrive, including Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See. After analyzing its first few months’ experience in the library eBook market, late last month the publisher dropped its requirement that libraries buying its titles participate in a Buy-It-Now (BIN) program.
