Not one prediction about ebooks has been correct so far. Why? A summer rant

Let’s face the simple truth: Not one prediction about ebooks (as far as I know) has been correct so far:

No, ebooks will NOT go away any time soon. But no, again, they will not replace printed books, not even mass paperbacks, within a decade or so.

Thus far, ebooks have strongly impacted only on some markets: English language (US, UK), and genre fiction (big fiction bestsellers, fantasy, romance, young adult) – and ebooks helped propel self-publishing.

Interestingly, in the various – and very diverse – Non-English markets of Europe, ebooks have stalled early on, in a very different pattern from US or UK. But strangely, they behaved remarkably similar for those niches of genre fiction and blockbuster novels (and found plenty of people downloading those in English, and not, say, in Slovenian or Dutch translations).

Publishers, particularly in Europe, have had their hand in all this, by keeping prices high, and by believing in the gospel of iron cast copyright protection technology (DRM).

APA reports continued strong audio sales | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

The Audio Publishers Association (APA) released the results of its annual sales survey, conducted by the independent research firm Management Practice in the spring of 2015, which revealed that the audiobook industry is continuing to expand in sales as well as the number of titles being published in the format.

Based on information from responding publishers, the APA estimates that audiobook sales in 2014 totaled more than $1.47 billion, up 13.5 percent over the previous year. Additionally, 1,032 more titles were published on audio than in 2013, bringing the number of audiobooks published in 2014 up to 25,787.

The APA credits industry growth to the increasing popularity of the digital download format and the increasing awareness and profile of audiobooks in general. Sales of digital downloads continue to rise, showing an increase of 7.3 percent in dollars and a full 10 percent in units sold from the previous year.
