Digital Sales Down 2% in Canada in 2016 - Publishers Weekly

Today, when Panzer ventured into the Catosphere, crying and moaning quickly surrounded the Panzermobile. Following all the noise, took our brave kitty to the Publishers Weekly site. There he discovered a post about digital sales in Canada.

The Publishers Weekly post by Ed Nawotka deals with digital sales in Canada as presented in The State of Digital Publishing annual report.  Digital sales are defined in the report as ebooks and audiobooks sales only.  The report details the fact digital publishing sales in 2016 were down 2 percent compared to 2015. This isn't surprising since digital sales are down in all English-language markets as stated in the post. The report is based on information collected from 50 publishers. The post also contains information about how digital publishing works in Canada.
Who speaks cat language? Wait! I do.

Panzer says, "Hmm ... If digital sales are down in English-language markets, maybe it's time to start translating digital books and audiobooks for other language markets."

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