Books are Up

New stats info indicates that book sales are up. Yay! E-book sales are up. Yay! Audio book sales are up. Yay! And university and educational book sales have overall increased. Yay!

But mass market paperback sales specifically dropped a bit. Boo! And retail trade children’s/YA book sales, after being the stars of the recession, have dropped some. Boo!

But overall, the news is definitely better than a kick in the head.
