BOOK SALES

Neilsen Bookscan's figures for 2012 year to date figures for the Irish consumer market make grim reading. Overall book sales are down nearly 7 per cent on 2011.

Fiction sales have dropped 2.1 per cent to €25.5 million and non-fiction is down a whopping more than 14 per cent to €35.6 million, although non-fiction sales are expected to rally for Christmas.

But the good news is that sales of children's books are up 1.1 to €21 million.
