eBooks vs Traditional Publishing

E-Book Endeavors has an interesting guest post by ebook author L.B. Gschwandtner. L.B. breaks down the benefits of self-publishing ebooks versus going the traditional route. from the article:

” According to Stephen Shapiro, a blogger who attended last year’s annual convention of the book industry, BEA, each year, 172,000 new books are published in the United States. Of those, only 1,000 books sell more than 50,000 copies in retail channels. Less than 25,000 sell more than 5,000 copies. Ninety-three percent of books published (160,000) sell less than 1,000 copies. That represents all books published. “
