The following quote about book sales is from Publishers Lunch:

"Trade sales of $8.1 billion were 'steady,' with adult hardcover rising 6.9 percent and adult paperbacks falling 5.2 percent. Mass market paperbacks totaled $1 billion, down 4 percent. By their count, ebook sales of $313 million--up 176 percent--overtook audio sales, which at $192 million were down 12.9 percent."

Now if only the publishers who are working through the agency pricing model will get their act together so that can continue.
