Doubling the amount of titles from a single publisher in a given month could help publishers better meet the growing demand for digital books, according to a study by ebook-specific publishing group Doubleday.
According to the report, Kindle publishers are seeing a sharp increase in the number of titles published by them each month, which is increasing the number and quality of the titles available for purchase.
“With the advent of digital, ebook publishers have become much more efficient at producing more titles and have seen a doubling of the number titles they publish,” said Samia Patel, the co-founder of Doubledays publishers, in a statement.
Publishers are also seeing a greater uptake of Kindle-only titles.
“As more and more ebook-focused books are published on Kindle, there is a great demand for these titles,” Patel said.
“We expect this trend to continue and continue to accelerate as the industry expands to the e-reader and tablets that the world is now living in.”
For publishers, the doubling of titles means publishers have to focus on the next best thing for their readers.
“The Kindle has a lot of advantages over print books and it has been an essential tool for publishers for years,” Patel added.
“Publishers will be in a position to leverage these new capabilities in future, but there is still a lot more to do to continue to drive growth in the digital space.”
