儿童小说帮助英国图书销量创下新高

文字稿

英国出版商协会(Publishers  Association)发布的最新年度报告显示,去年儿童书籍帮助英国图书销售创下35亿英镑的新纪录。虽然电子阅读器越来越普及,但电子书籍的销售额却下降至 5.38亿英镑。报告中提到,健身类和自助书籍深受读者喜爱。非小说类书籍的销量增长了9%,而小说类书籍的销量却下降了7%。请听 Rory Cellan-Jones 的报道。

With the rise of the Kindle and other e-readers, it did once look as though the publishing industry was going to suffer a period of severe digital disruption.

But last year, sales of physical books rose by 8%, with readers showing particular enthusiasm for non-fiction and children’s books. Meanwhile, there was a 17% fall in sales of consumer e-books, although online journals, academic titles and audio books helped the publishing industry boost its overall digital revenues.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was the bestselling book of 2016, with 1.5 million copies sold. It seems parents are much happier seeing children reading on paper rather than screens.
