GERMANS AND PAPERBACK BOOKS vs eBOOKS

8 05 2012

Being a full blooded American German, now I understand why I’m resistant towards eReaders – IT’S GENETIC 🙂

THE STORY BEHIND GERMANY’S SCANT EBOOK SALES
Ebooks last year accounted for 20.2 percent of all books sold in the U.S., up from
7.3 percent in 2010. But that mass adoption of the digital word is still far off in
one of Europe’s most-literate nations, Germany, where ebooks account for only 1
percent of all books sales.
