As part of our spotlight on bookshops in the UK, we’ve created an infographic showing the timeline of eBook market growth, from 1971 up to the present day. 2016 is the first year in many that we’ve seen a growth in physical book sales, and Amazon’s Kindle has flatlined. Whilst this doesn’t mean the end of the eBook, it does mean that we might be finding a balance between physical and digital, and booksellers are responding positively.
