    I heard a discussion on NPR recently discussing how sales of books that were completely available online skyrocketed 400%. This was due to several factors: First friends could easily share and recommend books to each other, Second it was easier to make a decision whether or not you liked a book by having it available to read in its entirety, and Lastly people did not want to read an entire book from their computer, which prompted the sales.

    That said I believe that the results are dependent on the type of books we’re talking about. Books that are skimmable for information, such as business guidance books or even self help books could see their sales plummet as their core value can usually be picked up with out a lengthy reading.
