The Stichting Marktonderzoek Boekenvak (SMB) announced this week that they would soon start releasing ebook sales stats for the Dutch market on a monthly basis, instead of twice a year. The data will cover most but not all Dutch publishers and ebookstores. Amazon’s sales are also excluded (you try getting the data, I dare you).
This might be a small piece of news but it’s still important. This is the Dutch publishing industry saying that the data is important enough that it’s worth publishing monthly.
