EH 6 11 13 BookPrices SLJ’s Average Book Prices 2013Here at last, the numbers you’ve been waiting for—the list of average book prices for 2012 and 2013 to date—are ready, produced in partnership with Baker & Taylor. We know this data helps you make sound decisions. Look for the next iteration in Spring of 2014.

The data, based on figures supplied by Baker & Taylor, shows average list prices for all books (including children’s books, young adult books, paperbacks and hardcover editions) that have been sold (not published) during the time frames listed. Separate calculations have been supplied for the school market and the public library market. Averages are calculated by total number of all book sales divided by the number of books sold.
