New BISG report brings mixed feelings
The Book Industry Study Group just published a report that states that book sales are expected to increase slightly this year (Harry Potter), but will continue to remain stable. The one area, as we've mentioned here, due for expansion is religion. Religion books are expected to grow at a decent rate, by industry standards, through the next few years. Many outlets have covered the publication of this report. One from the AP, via ABC News, does mention a trend we've posted here about the growing number of college students look to the used book market.
