Book sales hit a record as children's fiction gains in popularity

儿童小说帮助英国图书销量创下新高

With the rise of the Kindle and other e-readers, it did once look as though the publishing industry was going to suffer a period of severe digital disruption.

随着Kindle和其他电子阅读器的崛起,曾经一度以为出版业将经历一段严重的数字颠覆时期。

But last year, sales of physical books rose by 8%, with readers showing particular enthusiasm for non-fiction and children's books. Meanwhile, there was a 17% fall in sales of consumer e-books, although online journals, academic titles and audio books helped the publishing industry boost its overall digital revenues.

但去年,实体书的销量增长了8%,读者对于非小说类和儿童读物表现出了特别的热情。与此同时,尽管在线期刊、学术书籍和有声读物帮助出版业提高了数字产品的整体收入,消费性电子书的销量下降了17%。

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was the bestselling book of 2016, with 1.5 million copies sold. It seems parents are much happier seeing children reading on paper rather than screens.

《哈利波特与被诅咒的孩子》是2016年最畅销的书,售出150万册。家长们似乎更乐于看到孩子们在纸上阅读,而不是在屏幕上阅读。
