Another Digital turning point - E-book sales top paperbacks for first time
E-book sales in February topped all over formats, including paperbacks and hardcovers.
"E-book sales totaled $90.3 million in February, up 202 percent compared to the same month a year earlier, according to a study from the Association of American Publishers. That put e-books at No. 1 “among all categories of trade publishing” that month — the first time e-books have beaten out traditional publishing formats."
$90.3 million for the entire month of February of all ebooksseems like a small number - Microsoft makes that revenue each 1.5 days.
