Germany's Publishing Revenue Rises 1% in 2016 - Publishers Weekly

Today, Panzer made a trip to the Publishers Weekly site. There our traveling kitty found a post about the state of the German book market.

The figures don't look good to me.
According to Ed Nawotka's post, Germany's total 2016 book sales revenue figures are now available. The total 2016 revenue rose just 1 percent compared to 2015. The biggest increase for the period was in children's book sales at 9 percent. Ebook sales, however, were nearly even for the time period having only risen .1 percent. Book translations did show a rise for the period from 12.4 percent in 2015 to 13.6 in 2016. There are graphs and charts to illustrate the percentages in book publishing numbers, genres and revenues.

Panzer says, "Hmm ... Ebook sales were flat?"

Note: With the charts and graphs this is a v-e-r-y l-o-n-g post. Bring a thermos of tea and half a dozen muffins for today's reading selection.
