e-books in the Netherlands

Clear signs that e-book sales in the Netherlands are beginning to accelerate.

Sales of e-books in the first half of 2012 exceeded 600,000 in the Netherlands.  This means that e-book revenue now constitutes 3% of the total market and is expected to exceed 5% by the end of the year.

Both Apple and Kobo have already entered the Dutch e-book market and there are signs that Amazon is preparing to join them this year.
