Random Housel eBook Sales Jump 250% Over 2009

And they've done it WITHOUT iBooks. Hmmm. The Bookseller: "Random House's global e-book sales are up 250% year-on-year according to chief executive Markus Dohle. In his end of year letter to staff Dohle also said that in the US this autumn for some of its lead titles nearly half of the overall first-week sales have been in the e-book format. Dohle added that he expected this growth would continue into 2011: 'With the coming proliferation of e-reading devices and e-bookstores in Germany, the UK, Spain, and Latin America, we expect digital sales increases to resound globally.'"
