Audio Book Sales

Interesting news from the Association of American Publishers (AAP), reflecting the trend of increased downloaded audio books vs. physical copies:
Downloaded Audio Books also saw an increase of 20.7 percent over last year, with sales of $6.3 million this October; and the category was also up 38.6 percent year-to-date. Physical Audio Book sales decreased 20.5 percent in October with sales totaling $14.7 million; sales for the year to date are down 13.5 percent.

With the increase of e-book readers capable of playing mp3 files, and portable computers like the iPad and netbooks - my bet is this trend will only continue!
