I'm a bit confused about some of their numbers--for instance, I'm pretty sure ebook sales overall have gone up more than 39% in the past three years (more like 300% if I was to guess). But still.
People obviously think there are jobs to be had in the publishing business too, judging by the number of people who query me every day asking about editing jobs.
Recession much? Seems like everybody is after a 2nd job, which unfortunately many people believe will pay millions because "SusieLou in your hometown is earning $8000 a week working at home!" People just don't want to hear that those jobs don't really exist. (live webcams not withstanding)
Romance is sexy!
