BISG did share a few of the findings from the report.
- Consumers are very interested in “bundling” print and digital versions of a book, with 48% of survey respondents willing to pay more for bundles.
- Just over half of survey respondents would pay more for an e-book if it could be given away or re-sold.
- Consumers do not distinguish between e-books published by traditional houses and independently published options when making buying decisions.
- While the numbers are relatively small, there is an increase in the number of people who buy print and digital versions interchangeably with a slow decline in the number of people who exclusively buy e-books.
