dutch flagFutureBook has a brief report on the Dutch e-book industry, which appears to have started taking off since Kobo and Apple entered the market in the last year. E-book market revenue makes up about 3% of the market now, and is expected to account for 5-7% by the end of the year. Barnes & Noble, Google, and possibly Amazon are expected to enter the Dutch market this year, and Dutch e-book distributor Central Bookhouse expects to make 1.5 million sales by the end of 2012.
