  1. “$27.01 billion in net revenue in 2013, selling 2.59 billion units”

    Interesting – that suggests an average profit of $10 per unit sold. Ebooks and paperbacks account for the majority of the units solf, but their prices are typically not much more than that average profit per unit. That suggests that nearly the entire purchase price of a typical book really is profit to the publisher.
