More E-Books Being Produced Than Hardcovers in UK in 2011 for First Time
From The Bookseller (E-book production overtakes hardbacks in 2011):
E-book production overtook hardback output in 2011 for the first time, as the number of new titles published in the UK continued to flatline, according to book production figures published by Nielsen BookScan.
Publishers produced 149,800 new books and new editions in 2011, down from the 2009 high point of 157,039 and down from last year’s 151,959; this was despite the growing number of e-books published with separate ISBNs from their print equivalents.
