Publishers under $50m contribute (apparently)

The Book Industry Study Group Trends 2006 document has been released and tells us all kinds of interesting stuff about who turns over what in which sector. With both the childrens and religious books showing on the face of it the most growth with 9.6 and 8.1 percent growth in 2005. Total net revenues for 2005 were $34.59 bn.

But perhaps most interesting is that for the first time accurate information was taken from the smaller and mid sized publishers. Which since this constitutes probably 90% of all publishers (if not more) makes you wonder why they didn’t do so before. Apparently, they are difficult to get information from because they don’t belong to trade associations etc. Which to be blunt all sounds a bit lame to me.
