Why Ikea needs to worry about ebook sales

by Carl Natale on January 16, 2012

The blog paidContent notes that “E-Books Outsell Print For Majority Of Titles On USA Today Bestseller List.”

This is just a look at a couple weeks of one list so it’s not fair to call this a trend. Plus the sales are recorded right after Christmas. The assumption is that new Kindle and Nook owners quickly started their electronic libraries.

But it’s worth watching.

It also raises a couple questions for me. As ebooks become more popular, they’re going to replace deadtree versions. What are readers going to do with the free space on bookshelves?

Will the sale of bookshelves be affected? What effect will this have on sales at Ikea?
