Amerikanska förlagsföreningens försäljningssiffror visar att
e-böckerna nu passerat p-böckerna.

Anmärkningsvärt är den snabba ökningen av e-böcker
för barn och ungdomar.

Here’s more from the report (Q1 2012 chart embedded above): “In Q1
2012, net sales revenue for eBooks was higher than that for Hardcover;
this represents a switch of  positions in the category vs Q1 2011.  In
both quarters, however, Trade Paperback remained a clear #1 in net
sales revenue despite some erosion. While eBooks continue to show
growth, downloaded audiobooks also keep accelerating vs last year – as
some experts have said, tied to ongoing popularity and acquisition of
smartphones and mobile devices.”

At the same time, the YA/Children’s category saw hardcover growth.
Hardcover revenue in this category was $187.7 million for Q1, up
nearly 67 percent. eBook sales in the same category skyrocketed almost
233 percent to $64.3 million.
