Bulgarian publishers have announced statistics showing a continuing slump in the yearly sales of books in the country.

Since 2008, book sales have been dropping by some 7-8% each year, according to their data, reports bTV.

For 2011, that means some 12 M units shifted, or little less than 2 books per year per capita.

The average price for books sold during last year has been about BGN 11, say publishers.

December, January and August have proven to be strongest for sales, not only due to winter holidays, but also due to emigrants making a trip home for the summer.

The most sold books fall in the categories of fiction, children's books, and popular "for dummies" editions, say publishers.
