Book Sales Figures Boost for Christmas But Down On Year Ago

According to data from Nielsen BookScan, sales of books across the four weeks to 26th December period totalled £271.7m, up 67% on the previous four-week period but down 1.1% year on year.

The latest Nielsen book sales figures will be released later today. The British Retail Consortium said of book performance in December: "Book sales remained down on a year ago, amid strong competition, aggressive discounts for top titles and increasing popularity of e-books and e-readers."
