Canadian Print Book Market Slightly Down

Posted at 4:10PM Monday 24 Mar 2014

BookNet Canada has released the 2013 edition of its annual market report, The Canadian Book Market.

Unit sales across the total market in 2013 were down by 3.41% compared to 2012. However, some categories were stronger in 2013 than the previous year: unit sales increased by 5.57% for juvenile non-fiction and 21.91% for biography and autobiography. In addition, sales figures in The Canadian Book Market do not include ebook sales, nor online sales of print books, so the overall book market may be healthier than reflected.
