SLJ’s Average Book Prices for 2015

EH_6_11_13_BookPrices

The numbers you put to work every year are here—the list of average book prices for 2014 and 2015 to date, produced in partnership with Baker & Taylor. We know this data helps you make sound decisions.

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.

Look for the next iteration in Spring of 2016.
