From Publishing Perspectives:
YA books sold $1.56 billion for the month, of which $222 million were ebooks.
And yet, teens appear to be “snapping back to print,” said Kristen McLean at the Tools of Change Bologna conference on Sunday morning, just prior to the opening of Bologna Children’s Book Fair. Sales for YA ebooks represent just 20% of the segment, versus 15% for children’s books in general and just 2% for picture and story books.
What about you? Have you noticed any trends in the hows and wheres of teen reading?
