According to author Jane Smiley, "Many people, myself among them, feel better at the mere sight of a book." She's right. In the first quarter of 2012, the Association of American Publishers reported book sales of nearly $512 million. That quarter marked the first time adult e-book sales surpassed adult hardbound sales at $282.3 million, and they report that book sales in general continued to rise throughout 2012. Locally, Richelle Klug, director of the St. Clairsville Public Library, says that patron attendance at their branch rose a little over 11 percent from 2011 to 2012.
