May e-book sales rise again

A quick "bonus post" for today:

IDPF recently released trade e-book sales statistics for the month of May. Sales were up by 24.3% over May 2007. Information and historical trends can be viewed on the IDPF industry stats page.

What's notable is that all e-book sales on eBay have been banned since May. E-book sales on eBay were sold by some sellers to inflate their feedback ratings: sell low priced (typically >$1) pdf's, delivered digitally, in effort to increase performance ratings quickly. At least that was management's reasoning when the ban went into effect.
