Major changes predicted for e-books in France

e-book sales, currently at 1% in France, predicted to grow and 'shake up' the book sector.

CAS, an advisory body to the French Prime Minister, has called for measures to help cope with the predicted major changes that e-books will bring to the French market.

CAS (Strategic Analysis Centre) worked with the National Book Centre (CNL) to recommend measures that will help develop ebooks in France.  These include:

  • A single e-book distribution platform
  • Improved operability
  • Attractive ebook pricing
  • Strategies for booksellers combining 'bricks and mortar' and online sales
