Self-publishing around the world – useful stats (infographic)

There are plenty of facts about ebooks or libraries released each year. You can’t say that about self-published books, especially the ones from other countries than US.

It’s where a new infographic from a book marketing company BookWhirl, comes very handy. It lists facts about self-publishing and digital publishing from several countries, including – besides US and UK – Canada, Australia, Germany, Russia, Brazil, and China.

One clarification to be made is that is it’s not a comparison. It’s just a list of various facts and figures collected from different sources.

Do you know as much as 28% of ebooks sold online in Canada are self-published? In Germany almost half of top digital books are published by their authors.
