E-book sales flat

Statistics for e-books in 2005 showed no increase in terms of number of units sold. This is in spite of the fact that the number of titles available increased by 20%. On a positive note for the industry, revenues were up 23%. If you've been following the blog, you are probably aware that I was not surprised by these figured when they came out in May. There is a lot of buzz that the Sony Reader may change these figures for 2006. In all honesty, the numbers have nowhere to go but up, so I do expect a marginal increase in sales.
