Wanna Publish A Book? Then Take These Stats Into Consideration...

Getting a book published would be a great feeling. And, yes, it can be done.

Just make sure you understand the cold, hard facts upfront:
  • One-third of high school graduates never read another book for the rest of their lives. In addition, there are many people who do not even graduate from high school.
  • 58 percent of the U.S. adult population never reads another book after high school.
  • 42 percent of college graduates never read another book.
  • 80 percent of U.S. families did not buy or read a book last year.
  • 70 percent of U.S. adults have not been in a bookstore in the last five years.
  • 57 percent of new books are not read to completion.
