US Adult Trade Ebook Growth Increases 41% in Oct. to $103.7 Million

Posted at 5:40PM Monday 25 Feb 2013

The trend of more moderate growth for ebooks in the U.S. in 2012 abated slightly in Oct. as sales of adult trade ebooks were up 41% versus the same period last year — more than the 30.7% growth ebooks showed in Sept. It's still much less than the triple-digit sales growth seen in ebooks in previous years. Growth in children's ebooks continued to moderate to a 42.4% growth rate in the month, retreating from early-year triple-digit gains.
