To 10 E-books of 2015


Whether consumers purchase print or e-books often depends on the genre. Children’s books saw print sales increase from 2013 to 2015. Meanwhile, the e-book share of romance has consistently been above that of adult fiction as a whole. So it’s no surprise that three of the top e-books for 2015 came from E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey romance series.
