Since 2011, eBook readership has gained 11 percent, and now more than a quarter of Americans read eBooks. Further, in 2018, digital books are forecast to account for nearly 20 billion dollars (one-quarter) of all book sales. With new programs that allow for e-reading on mobile devices, digital book readership has more than tripled on tablets and doubled on mobile phones (Pew Research Center). With numbers like these, it’s no wonder that over 140,000 eBooks were self-published in 2017. Many digital books are being outsourced to professional writers so that thought leaders can focus on delivering their ideas quickly and professionally to their audiences.
