I have heard/read from different sources that somewhere between 60,000 and 80,000 books are published in the U.S. each year. This includes ALL titles. And then I've heard/read that only 8 to 10 percent of new titles each year are fiction.
So...between 5,000ish and maybe 10,000ish fictional titles published each year. Any validity to this?
Tell Killer Yapp my toy fox terrier, Reggie, said hey.
More like 195,000 books are published every year. Fewer than two percent sell more than 1,000 copies.
There's no such thing as a "fictional title" unless you mean a title that doesn't exist. "Killer Yapp Does The Macarena" is a fictional title. I think what you're intending to ask is how many of those 150,000 books are works of fiction, or fiction titles.
Killer Yapp says Reggie looks good in leather but lose the cigar.
