Publisher e-book revenues rose 117.3% in 2011, claims trade association AAP, while adding sales of print titles fell sharply. E-book growth fell towards the end of the year, but still came in at 72% for December, buoyed by Amazon's (AMZN) Kindle refresh. Publishers such as MHP and PSO probably aren't complaining much, given e-books often bring with them higher gross profits than print alternatives. (previously)
