Publishers Weigh In On The Future of Ebooks

Publisher’s Weekly posted an article on its blog that allowed various publishing industry professionals from a variety of outlets to expand on the generally accepted prediction that ebooks will make up 50% of total trade book sales within five years.

Each of the executives spoke to how the shift to digital reading is having an impact not only on the publishing business, but also specifically to their individual companies. The overwhelming attitude that has been adopted by the industry is that ebook sales are already significant in their numbers and are only expected to grow; the publishing industry must be ready to adapt to whatever format books are selling in.
