Ebooks made up 9% of Simon & Schuster sales last quarter

Simon & Schuster reported $12 million in digital publishing revenue for Q1 yesterday, which is roughly a 233 percent increase over the previous quarter's $3.6 million. Included in the $12m are sales of stand-alone apps, e-books, and audio downloads. S&S has six paid iPhone apps.

Let's put this in perspective. Ebooks were about 3% of publishing revenues last year, and S&S is doing three times that much business.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
