There is strong momentum in the USA’s world of ebooks. Sales nearly doubled from 2010 to 2011, and ebooks now account for over 30% of all Trade-Fiction! BookStats compiled a recent report, which examines US publishers’ annual net sales revenues and net units. Their research does a good job at tracking sales from all adult fiction, non-fiction, and kids books.
