As a publisher, we are always tasked with keeping an eye on what book buyers are looking for in the way of adult and kids’ books.
Desired topics change often when life shine’s the spotlight on something (or someone) we would like to know more about. Lately, we’ve noticed is that people are pulling back from buying books in general even though many of our nation’s people are still currently under a Stay At Home or Shelter in Place order.
I’m thinking the buying public is too distracted by the forward march of COVID-19 (or too paralyzed with fear), to feel comfortable splurging on a new book. Having our nation’s library systems shut down is creating a situation where avid readers may be feeling like they are lost in a “book desert.”
BUT, we have noticed that affordable ebooks seem to be making a rise in popularity from a distant third place (behind physical books and audiobooks) to the forefront of the book-buying world. The reason seems clear–book-loving people are stuck at home, they are not commuting, and money is tight.
Enter, ebooks. Usually priced far less than their physical form counterparts, ebooks can be affordably purchased and easily read on an e-reader.
Audrey Press noticed that trend and have gone through the process of putting virtually all of our titles into ebook form…and all at “Pandemic Prices!”
