Printed Book Sales Fall £98m In 2013

Posted at 8:00AM Tuesday 07 Jan 2014

Sales of printed books fell by £98m last year - a drop of 6.5% from 2012.

A total of £1.416bn was spent on paperbacks and hardbacks in the 52-week period up to 28 December, according to Nielsen BookScan data.

The total number of printed books sold dropped even further - falling 9.8% to 183.9 million. A rise in the average price partly made up for the shortfall.
