New Report Shows Inportance of Digital to Canadian Pubs - PW (Publishers' Weekly)

Panzer was digging around at the Publishers' Weekly online site today. There our big bad kitty boy found an interesting post about Canadian publishers and digital books.

According to the post by Laura Godfrey, quoting from BookNet Canada's 2016 annual report, "State of Digital Publishing in Canada," digital books (ebooks) are becoming an important (albeit small) revenue stream for Canadian publishers. In 2015, 69 percent of publishers said 1 percent to 10 percent of their income was from ebooks. While sales were reportedly low for some publishers' ebooks, this was attributed to the fact they were digitally publishing older books that didn't have a market to begin with or ebooks that were done in a format readers didn't want.
A nap. That's a good use of my time.

Panzer says, "Why would you publish something nobody wants? That's just a waste of my time and yours."

Note: This a short post. A cup of tea should do it for today's reading session.
