January Sales

All is not lost. Book sales rose 3.6% to $785 million in January, according to the Association of American Publishers (via Shelf Awareness).  Of particular note is the continued dramatic rise in e-book sales -  173.6%. Of course, this is still only $8.8 million, as compared to the $102 million pulled in by Adult paperback titles.
