The Publishers Association has just revealed its Statistics Yearbook 2011 of publishers' sales, and the headline figure is that the amount of consumer eBooks shifted in the UK increased by 366 per cent over 2011.
The Association noted that all digital formats, including eBooks, audio book downloads and online subscriptions, accounted for eight per cent of the total value of book sales last year. That was up considerably from a figure of five per cent in 2010.
