BISG's Making Information Pay Highlights Print, Audiobooks Resurgence - Publishers Weekly

Today's trip into the Catosphere took Panzer to the Publishers Weekly (PW) site. There our traveling kitty reporter found a post about the Book Industry Study Group (BISG).

According to the post by Ed Nawotka, the Book Industry Study Group (BISG) reported on the increases in print book and audiobook sales. In 2016 hardcover book sales were higher than ebook sales. This hasn't happened in five years. The decline in ebook sales is attributed to readers switching from ereaders to smartphones. In 2015 (latest available information) audiobook sales increased by 27 percent. The increase is attributed to indie authors now being able to go to Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX) and do their own audiobooks. Other information is included in the post.
I'll practice my voice exercises.

Panzer says, "Hmm ... Smartphones? Time for Amazon Short Reads? ... And audiobooks? ... Mom. Where's the microphone? This kitty is ready to record his book."

Note: This is a medium post. Bring a cup of tea and a muffin for today's reading selection.
