Amazon Reports 32% Growth in Sales

Booksales are up but bookstore sales are down. Perhaps the difference can be explained by Amazon who reported a profit of $111 million for quarter ending March 31 with sales up 32% from a year ago.

I remember when reports said that Amazon book sales only account for 5% of the book market. I wonder what it is now.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com
