Is the writing on the ewall? Although this article doesn’t actually state ebooks are outselling physical books, it’s certainly trying to suggest it will happen: it sneakily uses % increases and falls rather that actually volume and sales values. The TechRadar website is generally pro-technology, so take what it says with a pinch of salt. Still, people who like to predict things based on trends (didn’t see the credit crunch coming, though, did they?) might wonder if the fateful day is fast approaching whereby e-copies start to outsell hard copies of books.
Sales of ebooks soon to overtake hard copy?
