The folks over at O'Reilly Media published a survey which examines publisher stats for titles in the Apple iBookstore as of April 26.
They concluded Smashwords titles represent 5.2% of all titles in the bookstore, putting us in the #6 position in terms of title count.
It'll be interesting to see how the numbers trend over time. We now publish and distribute over 11,000 original ebooks, and to date we've only supplied the iBookstore a fraction of these.
We'll supply thousands more in the next 30 days.
This is great news for those of you who distribute with Smashwords. You're part of a quiet revolution that will democratize book distribution to the benefit of all indie authors and small publishers.
