Online stores like Amazon and Barnes & Noble get publishers to get higher returns for electronic formats than for paper volumes.
During 2013 there was the definitive change (probably this is no longer going back) in the balance between sales of digital and paper books. For the first time the ebook surpassed the “analog” book. While ebooks sold a total of $ 7.54 billion in the United States, paper books sold $ 7.12 billion.
The difference is not much, but it is the confirmation of a trend that has been manifesting itself for a few years now, and it seems difficult to reverse the evolution of the market. On the contrary, next year we will surely see how that gap has increased in favor of the ebook.
