Did you know…

  • 49% of book purchases at independent bookstores are entirely planned and purposeful, whereas consumers who purchase books outside of traditional bookstores (grocery stores, non-book retailers, etc.) are much more impulsive.
  • History readers are very dedicated to print, purchasing almost 90% of their books in this format.
  • 43% of parents currently read sample chapters online prior to purchasing a book, and an additional 18% are interested in doing so in the future.

Sign up for SalesData and we’ll send you a free copy of our annual market research report, The Canadian Book Market, plus an in-depth study of perennial bestsellers (is your store missing any?). Read a short sample of The Canadian Book Market.
