US Book Sales Rose 1% in 2013

Posted at 6:51PM Tuesday 01 Apr 2014

Total book sales rose 1.0% in 2013 over 2012, to $15.05 billion, at the 1,211 publishers that report results to the Association of American Publishers' StatShot program. Every one of the major book categories measured by the AAP had an increase in the year with the exception of the children & young adult segment where sales fell 6.6% due mainly to difficult comparisons to 2012 when the Hunger Games was a huge hit. The adult book category managed to show a 0.8% increase in the year despite the blockbuster numbers turned in by the Fifty Shades trilogy in 2012.
